Probably the most commonly used type of chemical filtration in freshwater aquariums is activated carbon. Activated carbon absorbs noxious chemicals and dyes from the water keeping the water clear. Ammonia absorbing media is also found on the market, but is utilized less frequently due to the more efficient removal of ammonia that can be accomplished by a healthy biological filter. Chemical filter media requires replacement over time as it reaches it's absorption capacity. Typically every 4-6 weeks, depending on the filter size, water chemistry, and the stocking density of the pond. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations when using these products.
