Thanks everyone,

I went and got some polyester for about $3.50 and i replaced the filter screen on a standard penguin cartridge with it. How thick should I go before it stops being effective and starts to just impede flow?

Seachem is on the shopping list, just 100ml as its only a 36 gallon.

I hate seeing the light reflecting off my garbage quality water, here is a picture of the tank
