Fluval chi 6.6 gal.. Removing activated carbon?
Hey guys, I'm about to set up a new 6.6g fluval chi. (Pure ammonia fishless cycle starting on Monday, I will then add a "potted" anubias plant in the central plant box, and the Betta will be my last addition.) I was thinking of removing the carbon in the filter, as I don't want it interfering with plant nutrients, don't want to have to change filter cartridge, and would like to use tannins in water (driftwood, almond leaf, maybe green tea is that is safe)...
So my big question: I won't have the tank until Monday, and I don't know what the filter cartridge looks like. Anybody have any experience with the fluval chi filter and know of a way to take out carbon?
