I was interested in running some carbon in my 30 gallon system, but I've read that using carbon in a media reactor uses the media much more efficiently as opposed to just placing the media in a filter bag. I was thinking about adding some carbon into an old DI
cartridge, since it makes for a nice reactor size with all of the media removed. I would then have a pump pass water through the cartridge with media and foam sponges to hold it in place.
Would this idea work?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
