. To clear it up fast, an external filter hung on the back of the tank should do the job.
. Now, why do you have a problem with "colloidal particles"?
. You may be over feeding and there is an accumulation of food particles. If this is not taken care of, it will lead to ammonia and nitrogen problems.
. Overcrowding is a common problem.
. I have used undergravel filters with great success. A well-balanced tank with an undergravel filter requires very little maintenance.
