tannins and possibly dirt, some got a bit stirred up. Make that definitely dirt, it keeps clogging the filter

EDIT: the water is yellowy, besides the particulate matter.

after I treat my tank with tannins, I stick a purigen in there to clear it...the plants cant handle an extended period in black water too well.
