Miracle mud hasn't been proven to do anything beneficial or be anything more than mud from someone's back yard.
If there isn't a trickle over the bioballs, then they aren't working as intended and can easily be removed for some other type of filtration as you would see fit.

What other filtration would work being submerged plants maybe?
