    Hello everyone my 20 gallon tank filter is not doing so well the bio wheel has stopped running since yesterday night and I'm not sure why I'm not so good with filters so that's why I am asking you guys if any of this has happened to you and how to fix it 009ead6921216b70476c34e64c1d8da3.jpg 40b53392d75d7c7253e377efcbfe52a5.jpg

    I don't know if it has to do with me feeding my fish peas though I take off the shells though

    And I forgot to mention it makes a awful loud vibrating noise the filter flows but the bio wheel is not spinning

    Can you take the biowheel off and check/clean the spindle? It's probably something caught in between, could be sand, algae or bacterial growth, or a snail.
