I have an Eclipse System with a BioWheel. The BioWheel has built up a nice healthy layer of gunk on it. Each time I clean the tank I also clean the filter and the intake (yes I know to NEVER clean the BioWheel). When I put the whole thing back together, replace the BioWheel and start up the filter again, I get more crap floating in my water from the BioWheel that my filter media needs to be changed again soon.
I have taken to putting a fine net under the output for a few hours each time to catch all that crap, but it still makes a mess and my tank is in a spot that my shoulder keeps hitting the net handle when I walk buy.
Does anyone have this problem, or any ideas how to stop this?
