Yesterday while I was at work my Enhiem filter stopped. I have a 40Gal tank. I suspect it was most of the day, as when I came back the water looked like pea soup and had a most ghastly smell. I put the filter outlet tube into a very big bucket and started to empty the tank with the now working pump. I got the tank down to < 40% full, and continued draining through the filter while adding 3 buckets into the top. In this way I changed most of the water. Then I filled the tank up. One of my wee orange tetras died during the night but the 5 clowns, the yoyo, neons and 4 tiger barbs were ok. How long will it be before things are back to normal filter-wise ? I plan on doing larger than normal water changes until I find out more.
Thanks 2 U all
