I've just gotten this penguin (I'm gonna say 100, but whatever is good for a ten gallon) biowheel filter like.. Boxing day, so it's really only like 5 months old (that was a really big guesstimate). BUT I've noticed lately when I clean the tank it takes forever to get the thing flowing again. Like I'll top it off with water to make it easier on it, and it goes all the way to the top, makes a fair bit of noise, goes up, down, up, down, then finally pushes the water out (full force) and the freakin biowheel doesn't even turn... What gives? Is it my filter or the biowheel? I manually got it going, but it moves at like 1/10th the speed of my penguin filter on my other tank. Advice?! Thanks!
