Hi thanks for your reply
My water is not cloudy, it just has bits in. I had thought about using floss pads when I first bought the filter, but I believe they have to be changed very frequently which I thought defeats the object of having a good filter. I had used the loose type of floss initially but found this did nothing noticeably. I understood floss pads were something extra. My local shop, (I live in Inverness), didn't even stock floss pads.
I have pre-filter media, at the bottom then carbon, then biomax at the top. the tank has been running about 4 months now. I only feed once a day sparingly and have about 15 medium sized fish. I spyphon my tank and hoover the bottom each week.
