    Hey all,

    Just wanted to know how long you would suggest leaving the activated carbon and phosphate remover in the tank before replacing it. It says on the carbon only 2 or 3 days and then it needs to be removed but i've read that some people leave it in for a month at a time.

    If you get yourself a good quality carbon you should be able to leave it in for a month.
