    Default Does activated carbon remove tannins?

    Will activated carbon expedite the process of removing tannins in the water leached from driftwood?

    It does. However, I was told to replace carbon every month.

    Purigen does for sure, and it can be recharged

    Why would you want to. The discus living in my show tank seem to love them.

    I add tannins, mini Cattapa leaves, to some of my tanks. I use Purigen in my canisters as carbon removes the nutrients that plants need.
