Increase your water flow, or adjust the power heads to hit the rocks, and stir things up for the filter to be able to remove it. If you have enough flow, the "dust" can't settle.


Take a clear 18" plastic bottle not 2 wide a hose and vacuum your sand. When you see the junk come out you will be surprised. Or you can just go buy one. I do it to mine maybe once every 3 months. Only to whats just showing.
