    Can I ask what type/style of filter you have, Helen?
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    That's a submersible with those white biomax nodes in it. Good filter by the way! Did you give the white biomax nodes a good rinse under the tap, before you put it in your tank?

    Yeah, it could be. Don't worry though, it's not a bad thing, it's just a bit annoying to look at. You can still give them a wash, Helen. I think they're in like a blue plastic cage looking thing, in between the two sponges aren't they? If that's right, just take that blue cage out, give the white nodes a good wash under the tap then put it back in the filter. Don't worry about that disturbing your cycle, all the good bacteria is in those sponges. Just keep the sponges wet with the tank water while you wash the nodes. Once you've done that, see if it makes any difference! If it hasn't made any difference, then it could possibly be lots and lots of little air bubbles.
