got ourselves a little fish tank (plastic jobbie) holds around 20-25 litres - its this one:
i think i'm having filter issues.
i've treated the water with the correct dosage of stuff (for nitrate etc), and put the filter in the correct depth, but the filter seems to lose its flow after a day or 2.
just replaced the filter cartridge after a 50% water change and 2-3days in, the water flow out of the top of the pump has dropped and is just dribbling out.
also, the colour of the water has turned a pale greenish colour (this could be the green plastic plants, but it has become alittle more green the past few days - the inside of the tank walls dont seem dirty though...
we use fish food flakes, which could be part of the problem, but wondering if there are better filter/pumps out there anyway for a decent price?
also, we have the fake plastic plants, but wouldnt mind a real one if - especially if it helps to keep the water healthy for the fish
we have cold water fish - not tropical.
anyone with any advice concerning any of the above issues or info to help get a better setup, it would be appreciated
