When to put carbon/bio-zorb back into filter
I did read the 'please read'. Some of the questions I cannot answer at the moment: I have just finished a course of anti-fungus medication 'fungus cure' from API. Also, I am not looking for diagnostics, as it was relatively easy. I first noticed it on a black molly (always seems to be the mollies). She appeared to be a 'silver tip' which was just whatever the disease was, plus some white patches on her body.
I immediately treated the tank according to directions: removed the carbon, medicated. I repeated the treatment 48 hours later. I did a water change, an amount I can handle, not exactly what was called for. Currently the molly is looking fine. (She didn't appear to be bothered by the fungus at the first.)
At the end, I am to do a water change, a little more than I can handle.
I need to do another water exchange. I would like to do this before I put the bio-zorb back into the filter. How does this sound to you all? Also, would it be recommended to change the bio-zorb filter again in about a week?
