Way to make filtration better?
In my goldfish tank, where I have 2 of them, 29 gallon. I have an HOB filter. It has room for 2 b sized filter cartridges and I put one in at a time. It also has a bio wheel, but it stops spinning a day or two after I put a new cartridge in! They are also very dirty when I change them out. I can't afford to change them every 3 days, is there anything I can do? Any cheap filtration?
My other tank doesn't get nearly that filthy, and I don't change it often because I have plants and instead of carbon use a pillow stuffing looking type thing in the cartridge.
The filter is supposed to be good for up to 45 gallons. *sigh* I do a weekly water change of about 5 gallons on both tanks, sometimes ill do another in the middle of the week for the Goldie's. once they outgrow the tank I'm giving them to a pond, although one of them was my first fish ever ;(
