    HI!
    I have what looks like brown algae all over my filter. It's giving off a very bad smell and I have been having about 2-3 fish die everyday for about 3 days. I've tried cleaning the brown stuff but it comes back within hours on the white sponge and within days in the plastic compartments. I've tested my water every day for the last few days and they have always been fine. It's a 55g tank. Any advice would help. Thanks!

    Take out your filter media and wash it really well or by a new one. Or clean the whole filter.

    Hi! I've actually done that a few times but it keeps coming back.
