I've always had Flourite in my tanks. Eco Complete is a lot lighter; I'm worried that I'll be vaccuuming it all up. Do I use a smaller vacuum?

I've been using a gravel vac for over a year on my Eco. It's just now getting to the look that I want. To me all that fine sand is undesirable. The small,less than pea size pieces that are left are much more uniform now. Next time i set up an Eco tank I'm going to rinse it first.
