How do I remove medication from a cycled tank or do I have to empty and start new.
Thanks Chris

Hi there, welcome to the site!
Carbon will remove most medications. you can buy carbon to put in your filter. also, i've found a product called Easy Life has removed medications i have used in the past as i always have this readily available and don't bother with carbon.
hope this helps Smile
