    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.

    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

    Carbon clears it up in a day or two.
