Tiny particles in my water....

Very tiny particles in my water from the stuff I cleaned off my glass. It seems my Aqua Clear sponge isn't filtering it out. I went to the LFS and they told me to buy that crystal clear stuff to make the particles bigger so the filter would pick them up. As I have read hear many many many times don't add chemicals to the water unless nessecary. So instead I bought a water polishing insert for a fluval filter (it says its for FINE particle removal)and stuck it in my filter. Any thoughts? Better ideas. The particles are harmless just something that was growing on my glass i scraped off.

How long has it been? Sometimes it can take a while before a filter can effectively remove a lot of floating particulate. I wouldn't use the water clarifier.

i like to use the 50 micron filter pads on a high flow filter mine is a fluval fx5 rated at 900 gph for my 125 planted tank it works wonders but it gets cloged fast. im working in a DIY inline water polisher with a 3 inch pvc pipe and filter pad stiched into a sock.
