Hi Fiona,

What type of filter do you have? What size tank?

Does the tiny bits look actually like objects, like food or waste or do they look like bubbles? Some filters will cause little minute bubbles if placed in the tank in a certain way, in a certain height.

my tank hold about 55 us gallons of water and the filter sucks up the water through a pipe, passes it through the sponge and stone things then back down the inlet water fall type thing?!?!? if ya get what i mean???

the bits in the water are just tiny tiny bits, doesnt look like food and is def not bubbles.
the thing thats getting to me is that last week the water was so clear

What brand/model is the filter? Basically, I am trying to figure if it's the right size for the tank.

Does the bits and pieces look like they are coming out of the filter? If so, you need to use filter floss inside, making it the last piece of material before the water exits out.

What type of foods do you feed?

Do you have a pic of your tank, so I can figure out the placement of your filter?
