Hey fishlore. Aquaclear HOB filter is clouding up water and causing a big mess in the tank. Spewing debris into tank instead of filtering it out. Pressure seems messed up too, one side of the filtration media holder coming up each time the filter is turned on, and air bubbles in tube that won't go away. Any ideas on how to fix?

Your foam sponge is clogged up. Fill a bucket up with old tank water. Hold the filter sponge underwater in the bucket, then thoroughly sqeeze it out. You need to do that every three weeks or so.
