First tank trouble using Fluval Stratum

9304 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Science Seuss
I am just setting up my first planted tank and bought the Fluval Flora kit. This is what my tank looked like after filling having rinsed the Fluval Stratum!



Three days later it's settled a bit but any disturbance picks up a lot of dust. The filter is also making an awful whirring noise. I'm not off to a great start.

Any tips on whether I should re-rinse the substrate or try a different brand?

No that's what the stuff does. I have it in multiple tanks. It usually goes away but no offense to fluval but that filter is garbage. I run a Eheim 2213 on my 7.5 gallon cube. I would recommend a better filter and should be fine! Haha
