I just got finished with a partial water change on my 75 and it seems as if everytime i do one, and after I prime my fluval fx5, it releases a bunch of junk into the aquarium. The small particles will float around the tank after everything is turned back on for an hour or so. Those of you that run a Fluval FX5, do you have this problem too ? Should I be rinsing the canister out in rodi
water every partial water change? Im kinda wondering if this stuff could be building up somewhere inside my filter.
Also I was wondering if should take the foam blocks out of the cannister, I clean them in old saltwater every three weeks, however Im not sure if that is enough to keep them from causing nitrate problems down the road.
Thanks for the help all
