OK should I add activated carbon in a reef aquarium or does that defeat the purpose of adding in trace elements also if I can't have the carbon in the aquarium to keep the nitrites at zero should I go out and get some of those bacteria balls currently I'm running an aquaclear 500 on a 40 gallon aquarium with just the foam filter in it I could add the bacteria balls with no problem at all. or should I just wait and see if the nitrates start building up. help please

Carbon doesn't really hurt the tank. People run it several different ways none at all, once or twice a month, or all the time. I usually have some in all the time and it seems to have no bad effects. Its pretty much the persons preference.
