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.
