Thank you for your kind response.
EHEIM Pro 3e has - Mechpro 25% and substratpro 75%.(canister is 8L capacity)
EHEIM 2260 has ceramic rings 50% and Mechpro 50%.(canister is 18L)
Water is changed around 20%-25% every alternate day, i need to clear the droppings etc, big cagey about messing up water quality, such large volume will get difficult to rectify and it takes time to get spoiled too i guess. When i remove droppings i also sort of churn a piece of substrate to get buried smaller particles too. The filters are cleaned every 2-3 months. I do not clean both at the same time, give some 2 weeks or so inbetween.
In case it helps, the water parameters are:
Input tapwater is 7.4 KH and GH is the same
Kindly do let me know if any other information is required please.
Thanks & Regards

Can you tell us what filter medias you are using and what water change schedule you have for this tank? How often are you doing water changes? How much water at a time? How often are you changing or cleaning filter medias?
