got stuff growing in eheim tubes
My girlfriend cleaned her eheim filter after seeing that stuff in the tubes two days later 3 fishes died. People said we shouldnt have cleaned the tubes with regular water but with water from the tank.
I am begining to see the same stuff inside my eheim filter and tubes. This filter is for my saltwater tank. It has a brownish color to it. you would see a lot of it go inside the tank after you squeeze the tubing a little. the fish go crazy because they think is food.
Now tomorrow sunday I am going to do my scheduled water change. Do i go ahead and tear the eheim apart and clean the tubing or is that good stuff for the tank?
