I recently setup my new 60x30x35 opti with AS Amazonia, problem is the water is really yellow.

I know this is normal but I have been doing 50% Wc's for the last 7 days and its still yellow.... :mad:

It lasted nearly a month for me first time round, the second time I bunged a bag of purigen in my filter and it has been crystal clear ever since.
Well worth the money mate.

Yeah the water was like crystal. you still need to keep up the water changes though.

I noticed the same thing - got up the first morning and I could see the water was yellow from across the room.

I put the bag of carbon that came with my Tetra filter (which I hadn't planned on using) in the filter, that cleared it up too. I haven't tried purigen yet - hopefully by the time my carbon's exhausted the yellow won't be such a problem.

Good luck,

Mark
