    I have a slight haze in my 37g tank and i cant quite figure out why. I run a cascade 700 and change about 35% water weekly. It's been occurring on and off for a couple months, even after I tore down the whole tank, switched out the substrate and changed from an AC 70 to the cascade. It seems to occur randomly and is only solved with large water changes. What's my first step in figuring this out?

    I feed northfin sinking pellets once a day. I have one 4.5" leaf fish, one 2" BNP, 3 mystery snails, and a few nerite snails.

    You could try adding filter floss to your filter. Poly fill for pillows is what I use. You can get a whole big bag for a couple doubles.
