I'm confused. I used to have crystal clear water before and after water changes, then the last few weeks no matter what I do the water is gross (with floaty food/poo bits, not bacteria/algae bloom) >55g, 4 fish under 2 inches, AC110 (500gph), AC70(300gph), Eheim Ecco Pro 2236(185gph) = total 985gph <-- fish fever >AC's have extra media, biological and mechanical >The last month they are fed NLS twice a day, finished within 2 mins, frozen bloodworms once or twice a week. >W/C 80% twice a week and params are all 0% with ammonia going max 0.25 >Filters were being cleaned every 3 weeks but now more often.. even after cleaning tubes/media/plastic compartments/intake it still sputters poo/food out when restarted (In fact AC70 and Eheim are both new from this week since my AC50 and Topfin20-haha.. both died last week) Is it the impeller area? Is it the Caribsea instant TMS I added June 19th? AC70 was added last Friday and today there wasn't any difference in the appearance of the water, installed the Eheim today so I will let you know tomorrow if there's a difference. I was thinking of adding filter floss.. but besides that what do you think is going on and what can I do?
