No don't retstart yet! I hear you with the fine particles issue I had the same problem a while back. Canister or HOB
filter? If its a canister, make sure all the media connections are together. In my fluval and rena, there is a top cover that I used to forget to put on ALL the time. This keeps some of the extra nonsense from coming through. Lastly, the BEST solution is stuffing the empty spaces with Polyfill as mentioned. It traps all the tiny particles your referring to and your tank will be sparkling clear I promise.
