If you're focusing on the poo, I gotta ask what kinda fish do you have? Northern Pike? Just do like I do. Add more plants to hide it. Plants are natures rugs!

Boy I'd hate to see your HOUSE if you're like that on a fish tank you'd hate to come to my place with my lil fur master (who decided to start shedding early this year )

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra

something seeded for you next filter.

I just realized that another reason everything seems so "dirty" is that I changed the way I do water changes about two water changes ago...I don't do such thorough gravel vacs any more, I just do the open areas, whereas before I was doing such thorough gravel vacuuming that I bet I turned over most of the gravel. I just thought I'd mention it to get it off my chest.
