I need help. My tank is full of particles and the water seems cloudy. I have a 45 gal tank that was given to me by a friend. I am not sure what brand of filtration I have but it is an undergravel. It dose not seem to be filtering out anything. I lost a few fish last month when I tried to clean it out. Can someone give me advice on what filtration system would be better?

I'd recommend ditching UG altogether. If you don't have live plants you could get a BioWheel 350.

I'd go with a canister filter over anything else. Ditch the ugf. Water parameters? Stocking list? How long has it been setup?
