Hi,

I'm using an external filter - Eheim Ecco 2234 for a 50 litre tank containing pearlies. Within days after changing 80% of the water and clean the entire filter, the fish surface appears to have blood stain on body & fins.

(1) Would require detail instructions how to clean both filter & tank (if req'd) to rid of recurring disease.
(2) How to effectively clean the inside of hose & Eheim pipes, esp the u-shaped portion?

Thanks.
