Hi,

I recently posted in the Lake Tanganyika section because of an issue with my Frontosa (which has since been resolved!)
As I was reading other posts I noticed that there is no mention of using carbon in filters. My tank was set up in 2006 and I researched how to load my cannister filter at that time. I have been using basically the same set up ever since, with the additon of bio-balls when I bought a new filter, a SunSun HW304B 525 GPH.

My question is for a 90 gallon tank with only one full grown Frontosa in it, how should I set up my filter? There are 4 trays currently and from bottom to top there is the bio sponge and a white filter pad, then the bio balls in the next tray, then bio rings with a white filter pad and the top tray is carbon and a white filter pad. Can you suggest a better set up to use in my tank?

I appreciate any guidance!

If that is what has worked for you in the past, just stick with it!! Carbon is used to clarify the water and removes most organics and medications when used.
