Roger - Any idea why this might be the case? I've used Marineland's
(Magnum) micron filters for a long time, and have had good results,
so far. Maybe your micron cartridge needs replacing?
I can't imagine how filter floss can do better at mechanical filtration
than a micron cartridge, unless the floss is so packed full of detritus
that it's got a little micron action going on, too.
I prefilter my Magnum's input with a big sponge over the intake, and I
also wrap the micron cartridge itself with a filter floss-like sleeve,
so I can go longer between cleaning the Magnum.
