Put a catfish or hard crabs in, to condition the bio filter and rid x septic bacteria.

oyster shells work good but the little clam shells work the best because of the little rigids on the shell hold matter better. always start slow with maybe up to 50 busters and slowly work your numbers up from there. rid x works but you end up with too much bacteria and not enough waste and the bacteria dies and you are back to square one. hard-head catfish work well in your filter tank...not your tables cause they will eat your busters.

Or keep your cat fish separated from your peelers.
