Great Idea with the java fern and wood! I'll do it now!

About this cloudy water....it still hasn't gone. It's been a good solid week now.
I cleaned ONE (that's one of the three) of the sponges in my filter in some old tank water. Once done I could hardly see an inch into that water!

Overall the water in the tank isn't looking better at all.
I went down to my lps the other day....it was nice to see clear water in a tank for a change! It really looks great when the water's clear doesn't it?!
Anyways, the guy there gave me a nother filter insert called AquaClear activated CARBON. He said it would "polish" my water quality, getting all the dirt out.
What are your thoughts on this activated carbon?

Cheers, Ry.

My tank:
20 gallon planted freash water (26*C) community. 30" long, 12" deep and 12" high. 40W lighting = 2 watts per gallon..
otb aqua clear filter
Pressurized C02
fish: 8 neon, 4 rosy barbs
, 2 brs. pleco
Shatered dreams of yesteryear, cloud horizons in shades of grey.

I like using activated carbon and it definitely won't hurt to try it and see if it helps clear up your tank.
