im confused about the quantity of activated carbon that is to be used at a time in my 2217(for a 300 ltr tank)...is 1 ltr of AC necessary? or small quantities of AC(like 200 gms etc.,) run for a period of 3 weeks enough?..thank you
i've got one more query!...im using anti-ammonia rock(??) in my canister!....do u have any idea what exactly it is?...how effective it is and any other brand which can remove ammonia effectively and maintain the correct PH for discus?...its written on the anti-ammonia package that it'll maintain the PH between 6.5 and 7.5!!...thank you.

im currently using "NICHE" brand activated carbon and anti-ammonia chips along with bioceramic rings and EHFISUBSTRAT(EHEIM's) for biological filtration....the water is being maintained crystal clear(EHEIM 2217 is really amazing!!)....after a couple of weeks, i'll remove the carbon and replace it with EHFIAKTIV and more of EHFISUBSTRAT...the DISCUS are very active and eatin voraciously... ..i want to use chemical media(like EHFIAKTIV) continously because i dont know anything about my tap water which i use for water changes....thank you.
