    Do you mean it the gravel is to small for your under gravel ie it falls through the gaps ? it has been a long time since I have used an under gravel filter maybe you could try a different type of filtration ?

    You may try finding some fine mesh nylon screen to place over your undergravel plates before covering the filter with the black silica. You may also do some research about the usage of Ridx to keep the solids under the filter from accumulating under the filter.
