check yr water parameters and come back tell us again.
what anti-chlorine u using right now ?

anyway, reduce feeding if possible. and if u really really want to try, remove the internal filter.

ok, will try removing interner filter how about the air bubles ?
by the way, what the reason behind for removing the internal filter ?
SeaChem ...the red bottles type.

I only have PH test kit, show 7 to 7.5. other parameter test kid no investment yet blush.gif .

I think you load is too high, so you have to keep changing water to maintain it.

yr tank a bit small and way over filtration. both filter will take a long long time to establish. thus you will find yr tank dirty very fast. further to it, internal filtration is not good for a small tank. currect way too strong.

Seachem Prime u r using ? should be safe.
aeration is okay. leave it there.

do a more thorough water change every 3-4 days for the next 2 weeks.
