    Every month or so my filter clogs up with green, stringy, slimy stuff. At first I thought it was the remains of dead fish but it happened last week and the werent any deaths. Its a real pain in the arse and I cant realy do anything about it. Its definately not algae. Does anyone else have the same problem?

    I used to get this snot looking stuff (sorry, but that word describes it perfectly) in my filter and would have to change the media sometimes weekly. No one could tell me what it was. I think I finally figured out that I was overfeeding my fish, and it was gunking up the filter media. Try cutting back on the feeding and see if that helps.
