Yea, I am doing the same. Just not working well enough for me. I'll just continue to use it, maybe it will come around.

Using media in a bag won't immediately work, you have to give it some time. Same thing with a reactor even, it didn't happen overnight and can't be fixed overnight either. Once again patience comes into play LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
