overfeeding can causes a bloom to happen food gets trapped somewhere and cause ammonia and nitrites to spike do large water changes and change part of your filtration. Just some ideas in my emporer 400 the 2 extra baskets that came with it i put a load of carbon and cotton into it my water stays pretty clear. I dont recommend using chems for clearing tank water they really dont work i have found

Reds take on several diff body shapes. I am surprised you guys have never owned a red with a flat head before.

not sure if that happens on purposes or genetics. Ive seen reds with flatheads and some more higher. I had a red with an unusual high back, maybe a vinny :laugh:

nice pics
