Default Carbon in filter: Really absorbs liquid fertilizers??

what is carbon used for then?
non-planted tanks with high bioloads? to remove all the amonia from the
tank?

I heard this advice from a guy at LFS. Yes, he is just a guy from a LFS.

But
is this true?


Yes, but unless you have a lot of carbon in the filter, it probably won't

make
a big difference.

I read activated carbon absorbs medication so it is wise to take it out

when
you add anti-ich
medication etc.


Yes. Always remove carbon when medicating the tank.

It's just that it's a pain to remove/ put on carbon in your filter

whenever
you drop some
medication in the tank


Just leave the carbon out. You don't need it.
