How to Clean Tanks with Soil Substrate
Hi, I posted this on a other forum but nobody actually answered me so I am hoping to find some help here. I have a small tank with fluval plant and shrimp stratum (or volconic soil)
as my substrate, its really light and easily disturbed.
I added a bunch of river rocks to hold the substrate in place so the filter doesn't push it around but when I try to clean the bottom of the tank, it goes everywhere. If I suction, it gets sucked up, if I try to just stir it so I can get some of the guck out, it goes all over the tank.
Is there some sort of trick to cleaning with something like this? I mean, I just want to give it a weekly clean so poop and dead plant matter don't collect.
