NEED HELP WITH FILTER CLEANING please
OK, I have a saltwater tank which I started 4 months ago. Yesterday I decided to clean the filter ( canister Fluval 204 ) for the first time. I removed the hoses took the base and cleaned the inside. Upon reinstalling the filter I noticed a problem. As soon as I turned the filter back on a lot of crap was coming out of the blower hose. I think it was the frozen brine shrimp that I occasionally feed, however it was white rather than pink/red. It clouded my whole tank, took about 30 minutes to clear up. What can I do to clean that and to avoid it next time? Should I be worried about my fish and inverts? Could it possibly be something other than the brine shrimp?
THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP.
