Okay so ive been cleaning my tank out and i have a ten gallon with rock and a few plants.
I grab the filter...package? the squishy carbon pack thing. and itake it out and its covered with algae or something. it was brown and slimy.
Anyways my point is. Is there any other good filter out there?
Like i hear about how good sponge filters but are they good for a small amount of room? and do they get all dirty like my filter is?
Id also like something that disterbs the water less. just for my betta. he kinda gets pushed around a bit so i built a plastic buffer for him but that gets all slimey too. and makes alot of current in the water. just on top.
Help appreciated. thanks
