Top fin 30
I have a top fin 30 on my 20gal aquarium. I think it doesn't filter enough. I really have to do a 20% pwc
every week. The water gets yellow (some of it is due to the piece of wood I have in there, but it seems that the water is not just tinted but also not clear, though it is not really cloudy... hard to explain). There is also a lot of debris on the bottom as if the filter doesn't stir up the water enough. I'm careful nt to overfeed.
I was thinking of buying a canister filter (because they filter really well, but mainly because they are very quiet) but it is too expensive for me at the moment.
I used to have an aquaclear 20 on a 10 gal
tank and the filtration was great. I like the sponge that comes foe the aquaclear. I think the media makes a big difference. I don't like the top fin pouch... it's really not a lot of media. Could I buy aquaclear media and put it in the top fin? How about the floss people talk about? Is there a problem with putting more media (for example if I decide to put two pouches instead of one) in there (of course being careful that it's not so tightly packed that the water can't go through!)?
