Yeah that is what I do after treating with meds...depending on the tank size, I might do a larger water change...say 50%. Just make sure the carbon cartridge is active, I usually buy a new one to make sure...as the carbon will remove most meds and impurities like discoloration, smells, and such from the water. A good gravel vac wouldnt be a bad thing either.
