my fluval 104 isn't working very well
not to Hijack this thread, but this is some what related. I used to have a whisper 20 (w/ very clear water) in my 10G up until about a month ago when I purchased a fluval 104. since then, green water has been relentless.
I had the filter directly next to my tank on the same shelf for a while, and thought this might have been the problem since the manual instructed me that the filter should be placed below the tank for optimum results. I have now placed the filter on the shelf below the tank. Still... the water is cloudy and green! It may be that I was struck with green water at the exact time I switched filters, but I have a feeling the problem is related to the Fluval. I have bought new biostar media for it, trying to solve the problem, still... no dice. does anyone have any suggestions on why my fluval isnt working properly? (besides the fact that it is junk) any tips?
thanks in advance
