this morning (4 hours ago) i cleaned my filter.
i put it in the tank and turned it on, and there were many particles after 4 hours still
this happened last time, is there just too much poop and i have to do a water change?

What filter is it and how did you clean the filter?

Also if itā€™s an external filter, are the pipes to and from filter dirty?

If you changed water you probably dislodged crud inside the tank too, on cleaning day I find it usually takes several hours at least for everything to clear up. I just tell myself all the gunk that gets thrown out in the old water is that much less gunk in the system.
