Ever since my axolotl had her first fungus infection I've noticed these constant flakes appearing on the bottom of the tank. It seems to clog up both the sponge filter and power filter. At first I thought this may have been broken down detritus but I've rinsed out both the power filter media and the sponge filter and it comes out as brown in the bucket but within a day its back filling up the bottom of the tank. Water is fully cycled ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate around 1-2 ppm(just hardly showing color on the water test), PH is 7.5. If anyone has any idea of what this could be please let me know, maybe I'm just paranoid or not rinsing the filters well enough? I've included pictures below. Only one axolotl is in the tank and any waste is immediately cleaned up as soon as its seen, doesn't seem to bother her at all. Tail and gills aren't curled and she still eats perfectly fine.
