Default Too much mulm

Hello zeoheads,
Anyone feeling they have too much mulm being released in the system.
I am on year 4 zeovit and loving it ofcourse.
One theme I noticed is that I have a mud like filaments that accumulate in the sump and I knownits coming from the zeolites...not sure if it's due to the shaking action ( I use a prs auto zeo reactor that have robotic shaking engine) or it's an actual mulm produced in the reactor.
The material color and characteristics is like mud...

Cheers

I had massive mulm in my first system also. The system was running many years and I never removed it. The system had no detectable PO4 and NO3 and corals where doing extremely well so I would say it doe not had any kind of a negative impact. Even if it contains some abrasion from the zeolite it will not cause any kind of a problem.

In my last system I removed the stuff just from time to time as the sump was easier to reach but this was more for cleaner look than for anything else.

Yeh am not worried about negative impact I do not see any negative impact. The cleaning is what's annoying. I have to clean the sump and remove the mud layers often to maintain the equipments ha ha.
Thanks alex!

Hello ohashimz, thank you. This is also the question I want to ask, and there are signs like this in my sump.
