This is my first post so i'm not sure if this is in the correct section.
I have a 29 gallon bowfront with quite a few plants,not sure of all the names but some are red telanthera, dwarf baby tears ,cardinal planta couple different tall grasses and some freebees i got with an order.
Anyways, I am using 2 hang on back filters one is a penguin 150 biowheel,
the other is a cheapo top fin 40 with a sponge filter on the end.
I dont think I have too many fish.3 blue-ram 5 galaxy rasbora 2 pepper cory 1 inspector pleco 1 bristlenose 2 bumblebee cat.
My problem is that I have alot of filth build up on my plants,Glass shrimp eat a good bit but there is always a fine layer on the leaves of the plants.
I have been considering going to an external filter, but I'm really not clear
on the benifit of one compared to the other or if this is where ineed to start to fix the problem.
I tried putting a couple dozen cherry red shrimp in to clean up but the rams though they were just gettiing a really expensive feast
