What I am suggesting is a hang on the back filter to add to the tank along with the sponge filter that sits inside the tank? These are two different type filters. I could not see what type of filter you are referring to.If you are adding fertilizers of some type to the tank the carbon would not be wanted for it will remove the fertilizer (liquid type). Carbon will clear the yellow water however. You could remove the carbon after it has cleared the water. Shouldn't take more than a day. doubt that java fern or moss would suffer in that length of time. Problem will re-appear until you reduce the numbers of fish.

1077 is right about reduction of population. Its the best way to fix your tank in the long run.

The filter that i have generated 200l/hr. So do i need to get a bigger one? Also cannot do hang on filters because the setup does not permit me to do this.

So il have to add a filter or change the current filter to a bigger one?

yes. Your current filter clearly cannot handle the load since your water is yellow and it clogs often.

So what do you suggest add another like the one I have or else change it to a bigger filter?

Id say get a bigger and add it with your current one. Is it possible for you to get a small canister? Those are often better than internals and are usually easier to clean. However, they are a bit pricey.

Do you know a good brand and model for the canister?
