yassy Posted July 25, 2021 Share Posted July 25, 2021 I would like to know if you have biomax in your tank or in your filter like aqua clear, and if you needed to medicate the tank, do I need to remove that as well? I know I need to remove carbon (carbonMatrix) if I were using it in the tank or in the filter when I need to medicate the tank. Biomax is not a carbon but biological filter material (Am I correct??), I do not need to remove it when medicate the tank? My tank set up: bare bottom with a few floating plants, filtered by sponge filter. I was dosing med and was adding CarbonMatrix after medicating the tank by putting some carbon into old panty hose cut out and tie on both ends just like candy and drop it in to remove med. However, since in the past, when I dose med, it was easy for ammonia to get creep up (I was testing water more frequently for quarantine tank) or I have had mini cycle going after med,. so I came to decision that I try put the BioMax into the quarantine tank to provide more surface for bacteria to grow. And hopefully, it would not make ammonia to creep up easy and provide more safer environment for fish in quarantine. In case you are not sure what biomax is, here is the link you can read it up product detail.This is what comes with aqua clear filter to pu on top of sponge. I got only this biomax for 10 gallon tank and just dropped it in for now. https://www.chewy.com/aquaclear-biomax-filter-insert/dp/152082?fbclid=IwAR1Eh954mroyCQOAPr7eeL-iHzqZonGO38Tdq-zPr8PSCdaVr2mho6izxcA Thank you.
