whenever my penguins slow down i clean the impeller and i make sure that i check under the rubber end-caps for strands of hair, filter floss, and java moss(any and all stringy stuff); those 3 things are always the cause of reduced flow or making the impeller completely stop spinning on my filters. cleaning off the biowheel ends helps a lot too. clean the white ends on the wheel and use a swab to get inside the caps that slide over the ends. make sure the biowheel is level when placing it back on the black bar.
