i suspended a stocking leg,filled with filter floss, near to the out-put of the filter,and it caught a lot of the small bits that were floating around.
it didn't look very good,and i got some strange comments,but if it works.
i have also used a treatment like that befor,however mine
did actually work,it looked foggy in the tank,but it did clear.
also i see you didn't cycle your tank first,so to help your fish now,
check your water for Amonia,NitRates and NitrItes.with a test kit.
don't rely on the fish shop,as they will tell you anything sometimes,just to get you to buy fish.
keep up your water changes,but leave your filter alone now!!!
as the bacteria need to grow. :)
check for redness around the gills of the fish,and if they are gasping at the surface of the tank,this will give you some indecation as well that all is not ok.
sorry to waffle on,hope to have helped a little.
