Well i purchased 2 fluval canister filters in the last 2 days my tank is 6 feet long so i have a fluval 204 on 1 end a fluval 304 on the other end and a cascade 300 in the middle with a short pole to do the top of the aquarium.Altogether now i should have 740 g/p/h but thats exagerated im sure my tank looks a little clearer but still lots of tiny particals floating around!I think it must be algae or im cleaning my filters to good and getting bacterial blooms!im gonna lay of the scrubbing of the filters so hard to see if that makes a difference!Also cut back on the food a little bit ,only 5 pellets twice daily instead of 7 like usuall!thanks for all the advice i'll see how it turns out !By the way my LFS is a damn rip off the fluval 304 was $219.00 and the 204 was $169.00 i should have ordered on line but i dont like waiting for things!
