Ozone beats them all. Its the moat powerful oxidant on the planet. Heres a before and after shot of the clarity of water in a bucket:

I bought the Avast ozone reactor since the time this post was created and it is AMAZING

Filter socks, carbon, UV, water change, clean the glass of all algae, eliminate background lighting around the tank. I like to add a layer of filter floss into my sump a day before pictures as well. Usually the day of a water change.

I converted a clear whole house filter to a DE filtration system. Filters down to. 05 micron. I feed heavy so clean every 2 weeks. 2 of 32 and counting
Very interesting. Do you mind showing your setup and describing it more?
