I've just finished a 3 day treatment of Melachite Green for a mild case of Flashing. I wondered how long after the last treatment do I need to wait until I can re-install my Penguin 125 Filter Cartridge. I had to remove it so the charcoal wouldn't nullify the treatment. Thanks in advance.

If the parasites are all gone, and no flashing is seen, then you're finished with the medication. So now you can do the water change and put some carbon in the filter.

(The filter has been running, right? just without the carbon...)

Hi wetmanNY....yes I left the bio-wheel running just removed the carbon filled cartridge. I see no signs of them flashing anymore so I will do a 50 percent change of water this evening.
