filters and mud
got a couple questions,
Fist off, I've got a tank w/ a flourite substrate.
the plants seem to love it, but my filter keeps filling up w/ what looks like
mud. It does this like every week and gets really anooying b/c the cartridge
can only be washed once, then u have to replace it b/c i just cant get
anymore mud out. It is a whisper filter, and i don't really like the filter
anyway. Anybody else have full flourite and any advice to offer. The second
part-any filter reccomendations? I want to replace my whisper on my 10 gal.
and was looking at a millenium 1000, aquaclear 150, and penguin 125. I read
the reviews on Aq. central, and the aquaclear had a good showing and seems
like it would be easy to rinse out. The thing I don't like about the penguin
and millenium is the pre-packaged cartridges. no way to remove the carbon if
I choose. Also, I'm looking for a good filter for a heavily planted 40gal.
w/ sand/flourite. Looking at emperor and millenium 3000. If anybody has had
good or bad luck with any, or just has a rec. for a good filter-PLEASE
Thanks in advance,
