Make sure you get good quality, high grade carbon, and put the correct amount in for your tank.

Some people run it for a few days a month, some for a week, some for a month...everyone seems to do it differently.

I'm surprised that, until now, theres been no mention of alkalinity. Anytime I read that a 6 month old tank wants to begin adding calcium I think it is a good idea to mention...

...that you shouldn't be dosing Ca without testing/watching your Alk levels....and generally one needs to add BOTH in order to effectively raise Ca/Alk and get improved coraline growth.
