Slimy filter cartridge
I have an eclipse II hood on my 29G low tech low light low maintenance
planted tank. I am having a problem where the filter cartridges clog with
within 3-4 days of cleaning or replacement. They get covered with slimy
stuff, and the carbon inside seems like it is stuck together. I had some
filter floss in there and while the gunk on it was the same color as the
stuff which comes out of my 72 gallon tank, it had a slimy feel to it, but
it did not smell bad.
Any ideas what this might be and how to fix it?

to the bed and it is just too noisy sometimes.
