Foam in Sump
I have Foam in my Sump in the chamber after the drains on each side. The drains have filter socks on them.
My tank does not look crystal clear like others I see posting pictures. So I removed the foam and rinsed it in a bucket from my tank, and was shocked how dirt it was. I know the foam needs to be cleaned, but did not realized how often, it only been in the tank a few weeks.
Anyway I filled the chambers up with filter floss tonight and I was shocked withing a few hours how crystal clear the water was, also my sump looks the same way. I am kind a shocked how dirty the filter floss looks. So I guess I am wondering if anyone else notices this? Maybe I am leaving my filter socks on too long before switching to another set?
