What type of filter are you using? Maybe easier to use a syringe to place the powder where you see fit. If you have a sponge or HMF it shouldn't be a problem, but with canister filters it can easily suck up through the outtake fairly quick. As Dukendabears said overdosing of any three could cause this problem.

I'm switching off my canister filter for about 45min - 1 hour when I feeding powder foods so the powder can settle down on the surface and not sucking into the filter. Am i only one who doing this?

Pretty sure everyone does that.


I wait a good 1-2 hours.

Yeah, I mix about 1/4 cup tank water with SL Aqua Magic Powder and SL Aqua Baby powder. Then I use a syringe to distribute all over the aquarium.  Since I have an hmf and a canister filter, I leave the canister filter off for several hours.  Seems like everyone gets a good amount.
