Raising Tank with Yellowish water

with canisters u can turn the flow off and remove the bottom to clean so you wouldn't have to have your hand in the tank all the time like when you clean your internal. However, the intake may be a hazard for your fry so you might need to add a sponge the the intake. I personally use a fluval, been excellent. Some will say eheim is better though. Somewhere in the forums is a thread debating the design of both. Look that up if your serious about buying a canister.

I believe we need to take a moment here, lest we lose site of the primary issue. I merely suggested that an additional filter would provide original poster with a little time to aquire a larger tank. The bottom line is ,there are way too many fish in a ten gal tank. The money spent on a canister filter would be better spent in my view,, on a Larger tank. Forty fish, hell Twenty fish,, Are simply too many for the current tank.

Well he cant get a bigger tank so his only options are: constant water changes and filter cleaning, an additional filter, or fish reduction.

The last option is the best, sell the fish, give em away, etc, until the inch per gallon rule is roughly met, maybe overstocked a little but not as bad as it is now.

The other two options will allow you to spend less time maintaining the tank, but overall, a horrible living environment for the fish.

All three solutions will fix the yellow water and clogged filter.

Sincrisis, I missed that post by original poster. Sorry. As I see it,, Taking a good portion of the fish to a fish store would be in the best interest of the fish. I have a ten gal quarantine tank and cannot wrap my mind around the numbers of fish OP is trying to keep. With water conditions capable of deteriorating in a few hours due to the sheer numbers of fish,, I am in agreement that Daily water changes will be mandatory,with or without added filtration.

I am the same, its hard to imagine that many fish in a tight space, makes me think of a feeder tank.
