I got this tank second hand the tank was dirty so i clean the gravel and tank but not the filter everything is fine . But today at the tropical fish shop i asked about the media now mine is carbon i got told by them to change it every 3 weeks ???????

what size is your tank and what make/model is your filter exactly?

Running carbon alone in a filter is not the best idea, you need something to remove waste from the water and for an area for the beneficial bacteria to live on.
