Weren't sure where to put this, so this'll have to do...

It seems I have a constant problem with particulate matter ("dust") floating around my tank. I recently did a small rescape, which I am sure stirred everything a little, but even prior to that, I could sit at my tank and just watch millions of specks floating around. The tank is 70L, filtered thru a 500lph internal. The filter just has that coarse black pad material, then fine white padding, then bio-balls. No carbon.

What would be a quick, simple fix for this problem? Should I add more fine-wool padding...? I'd rather not use carbon, due to it's nutrient neutralising tendancies, although I'm told this is what gives water a "polished" look. What about turning the filter off for a few hours, I know it's dangerous, but would that work???

HELP??!!
