Q&A Letter Spotlight

Robert Mallinson writes to Bob about:
Activated Carbon

Hi Bob, I'm needing some advice regarding the use of activated carbon, as I have just received delivery of an Aquamedic carbon reactor. The usage advice being given is confusing to say the least. The advice from two mail order companies is that I should run the reactor constantly changing the carbon every 4 weeks. Some others I have spoken to say change it every 7 days. Others are telling me to change it every two days. Then there is the owner of the local fish shop that say's not to use carbon at all, but to use SeaChem Purigen. You now can see my dilemma! What I would like to know is more.
