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.
