- I tried the U6 a couple of weeks ago, in addition to the Accent cartridge. I placed the U6 sponge vertically between the Accent cartridge and the heater, but it didn't make any difference. I was too lazy to take the whole filter out of the tank and check in detail what the best arrangement would be (like placing underneath the heater?)
- The last few days I've been trying the U4, I got it from Fluval support after I explained to them my issues with the Accent cartridge. So far it doesn't get clogged, but maybe that's because a lot of unfiltered water finds its way around the filter since it is slightly smaller (as Consp mentioned in another post)

I think using just that sponge from the 406 (not the U4 sponge) zip tied to the plastic frame from the Accent cartridge will work well. You can trim the 406 sponge to fit, but leave enough extra on the sides and bottom to ensure there is no bypass. There will be tiny holes from the zip ties, but the 406 sponge is so much denser it shouldn't make a difference.
Hopefully I'm not being confusing, I have a tendency to not always type out the complete thoughts in my head, lol. Old age I guess.....

My tank is still not done cycling yet, so I'm not messing with anything for the moment. However, I'm 3 weeks in on the original cartridge and so far, the water level has not dropped in the middle chamber and the tank is crystal clear. I've only done a few small water changes just to make things easier on the 3 fish in it, other than that, nothing to report.

Anyone solve the problem ? I bought this tank too and now having the same problem, noticed the water in my tank went yellow/green then noticed weird sound coming out the filter. The water level in the mid chamber was low. I rinced the cartridge, and switched the pump so the side that draws water is actually on the side of the cartridge.. Any other suggestions ?
