Hi. I have a 25 gal
with 8 pounds of LR
20 pounds LS
1 dwarf lion , 1 snowflake moray, 7 hermits, 2 snails. The tank is a little over a month old. In my newbie mistake I had the lighting on for 18 hours a day, and it became disgusting. I bought some Excital red slime remover per the fish stores advice, as well as cut the lighting down to 8 hours a day.
I'm using a cheap penguin hang on filter for mechanical filtration. The directions on the slime remover say remove all carbon from the filters but keep it running. I removed my filter pads, and have been using it for 3 days. I don't see how I can remove the carbon without the filter. Am I doing this correctly? I now have 0 mechanical filtration...
