Active carbon and water changes


Recommended Posts

Hi, so i came up with idea to use active carbon for my water changes.

I use two way siphon for water changes and i am adding water directly from sink pipe to aquarium. I was thinking of adding active carbon in mesh adding mesh inside of siphone pipe and capping it with gilter wool so particles/dust don't go in aquarium.

Would this work!?

Yes to remove chlorine and any organics or chemicals that could be in water in raining and snowing month's. 

I don't have any problems but just was curious. If it would be beneficial for aquarium why not.

Well, if you have chloramine, a contact time of 5 minutes and the use of activated carbon is required.
