I think most filters (unless they are sponge or something similar) have activated carbon, so you would need to remove the filter and possibly replace with something like aquarium sponge.

I measured out based on what the box said and dissolved it in some water and added it to the tank. You DO need to take the carbon out of your filter (the white part), but you can leave the filter on without it.

Just make sure to follow the dosage instructions closely. Don't stop medicating until you've given him the full course even if he starts to get better.
