Okay, im really bummed out on how to use parasite guard...

For all, this is the parasite guard i'm gonna use, and i plan to treat them right away when i get enough info on how to treat them...
Tetra™ Parasite Guardģ - Parasite Medications - Medications - PetSmart

In my 10g tank, i have 3 female guppies pooping white stringy poop right now

Ok, so this is how i think i'm suppose to use it...any errors?
1) feed fish
2) take out whole filter cartige
3) 25% change on water
4) cut 1 tablet of the medicine into 1/4ths (the circle tablet is about 1 inch in diameter)
4) dissolve 1/4 of 1 parasite guard tablet into cup with tank water
5) put dissolved parasite guard tablet water into aquarium
6) lets say, after 1 hour of putting the dissolved tablet in, i clean the filter cartige and put the filter cartige back in the filter and run it again
7) after 48 hours, repeat steps 2-6 again (of course i'll feed the fish)

This is a "note" that the description on the box says:
for tanks 40g plus, & for soft wtaer and/or water with low alkany, dissolve tablet b4 adding to tank. remove carbon from filter during use. treatment may repeated up to 2 time with 48 hours between treatments and a 25% change. For anchor worms or lice, repeat treatment up to 3 times using 1 time a week with a 25% water change.

Thank you, any errors found?

You can just take the carbon out of the filter instead of the whole filter media ... Right?? I have no experience with that stuff tho
So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water
