Carbon to remove medicine from water

Hello I am currently treating my water with maracyn plus and once treatment is completed, I plan on adding a carbon insert temporarily to my fluval power filter to remove any remaining medication in the water. My question is how long do I leave the carbon in the filter? I do not run carbon as I have heard some cons about using it full-time. I current have the foam insert in addition to 2 biomax inserts.

Add it with your next water change after treatment is complete and leave it for about a week.

Assuming you're doing regular weekly water changes, remove it when you do the next weekly change.

Hope your fish respond well to treatment.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
