Take a look at my tank and tell me how to fix this problem please.

I'm thinking i need to clean my BIOwheel 350 but not sure. I literally have been doing 10-15% water changes weekly. Should I try and go for 50%?
Also have 2 28w t5 Bulbs.

What could be the problem?

All the plants and fish are doing well.
4 tiger barbs
3 Jack dempseys
2 plecos

Hairgrass, dwarf lillies, and a onion bulb?

from my screen it looks like tannins from that dw in your tank but if it is green as u say then it can be solved by doing a black out or a few ways use the search button right below personal messages for green water if its tannins just do wc until its clear or get *thebag* made by purigen an it will clear that up in no time.

Activated carbon will take it out in a few days. But, until the drift wood stops leaching tannis out you'll keep repeating the cycle.

There is a point were too much tannin level is not so good. That's when your water starts to look like some poured in a Pepsi.
