Thanks for the reply Tom. My 100G tank is pretty clean, but now knowing this
another question comes to mind: I have a 41 G densely planted tank which 
develops a lot of crud on the bottom, which I thought was due to insufficient 
filtration, (I use the Eheim 2211 for that tank) but what would be the cause 
of this, just bad circulation ? I once stopped feeding for about a week to see
if it had to do with feeding but that maked no significant difference.

Best regards,
