Rid-Ich Plus with Aqua-Tech filter..Question about Carbon?!?!
I've only had to treat for Ich one other time, and it was with the cheap Jungle Wal-mart ich treatment. Now I'm using Kordon Rid Ich plus, which I've read good reviews on. I have an Aqua-Tech 30/60 filter (also from wal-mart) that has the cartridges with activated Carbon in them. Before, I was under the impression of just taking out the Bio-Fiber during treatment (that's what I had been doing, thinking that was the carbon.) Now, I'm confused since I know the names of all these parts, have I been doing it wrong? Am I supposed to take out the blue filter cartridges that have the carbon in them??

You can take a knife or scissors and cut the bottom of your blue media on your filter cartridge and shake out the carbon. Is your bio fiber a separate cartridge? Some medications do effect the bio, it should say. If you take it out you will need to keep it wet not sure how long it will be ok.
Yes the bio fiber is a seperate cartridge, and i had no idea I had to keep it wet. Thats definitely something ill have to remember. This time around, i kept the biofiber in and just took out the blue media with the carbon in it, the water seems to stay blue for a longer period of time but the tank also dirties up a lot more quickly. I wasn't aware if the medication would harm the bacteria on the biofiber. gosh, i hope not -__-
