After shocking the swamp for 2 weeks at FC=34, I'm quite sure the algae is dead. Had to floc to get everything to fall and then I vacuumed to waste. Trouble is, I still have junk falling and collecting but no longer enough water to vacuum to waste again. When I tried vacuuming through filter, water got cloudy, and it was back again the next morning. So my big question is:
Is my sand filter supposed to catch dead algae? Is there something wrong the filter with it if it doesn't?
Possible solutions (and I would love opinions as to what YOU would do):
1. Buy a slimebag. (Would I need one on each of the 3 returns?)
2. Buy a stick vacuum or robotic cleaner? (do they filter that fine?)
3. Have water trucked in so that I can vac to waste?
4. Is there a fine particle filter I can put in the skimmer when I vacuum?
