1fish2fish, just thought I'd add -

Removing the carbon filter doesn't effect your cycle. But it DOES depend what kind you get. If it's carbon and mechanical filtration, if you have a seperate bio-filter it will be fine. If it is pure carbon (and you have a seperate bio-filter), it will be fine. ... I think the main thing is, if you have a bio-filter / sponge, you can remove carbon cartridges in an out without hurting your cycle. I've been doing that for a while, and my cycle has always been fine.

But I'm stopping carbon, it got annoying. Lol :)

I just dumped the carbon out of my whisper in tank filter and am using the "pouch" .. I haven't had a problem with it. My eclipse cartrige I'm going to have to get a sponge or something to put in that pretty soon because its mostly carbon with a tiny layer of sponge on the top.

I have one last carbon cartridge left, but I'm removing all of the carbon and using it as mechanical filtrations. No chemical filtration would be fine, right?
