QUESTION ABOUT ZEOLITE
« on: December 04, 2010, 12:46:38 PM »

I know that medications say to take out the carbon in your filter before treating, so the carbon won't absorb the medication but what about zeolite that absorbs ammonia?  Could you put that in or leave it in the filter.
I was wondering if this would be a good idea since most medications or antibiotics will disturb the nitrogen cycle.
Hence, ammonia might appear while treating with medications.
Would zeolite effect medication dosing in the tank?

I'd say leave it in the filter unless it says on the package direction to take it out while medicating.  Smiley

I noticed that in the "special hospital filter" for the biorb, there are some pieces of zeolite in place of the activated carbon, so I'd say that it's perfectly safe to leave it in there Smiley

As there is nothin mentioned on the package to remove it ( like it sais on carbon packages ) I'd say leave it in there.... as spiking ammonia would stress the sick fish more.

No harm done in adding more beneficial bacteria though
