Well, I put in a new filter cartridge before I left for myrtle beach for the week, so I'd say my neighbor fed too much while I was gone or something. It usually takes a few weeks to get dirty.

Well the media was dirty, but even with brand new media in it right now, it's still overflowing a bit.

Go with the Aquaclear if you have the cash to spend. I think you will like it better, and it is very quiet. JMO
