Is this normal?

Post by Sandman1969 on Tue Oct 08, 2013 4:34 pm

First topic message reminder :

I just happened to notice today, that my Aquaclear 500 had "muck" at the top of the filter mixed in with the bio-max.
I have the Aquaclear sponge at the bottom & then 2 bags of bio-max on top. Been running this way for a good month now & just seen the build up.
Is that normal?
I used to have 2 sponges and one biomax bag and had never seen any build up on the top sponge.

I have added a sheet of filter floss on top of the sponge to help out.

They are in a 30 gallon. And yes, we know the Koi will get too big for it. We will eventually find a home for it.

They sure can,

The fantails will have to work a little harder to fight for the food in a crowd, but in small numbers they should be fine.

I have a fantail and an oranda in a 275gal tank with about 70 other single tail goldfish/Koi and the do fine.
