Okay so I'm new to this. I can't suction my tank for reasons of sand. Would some shrimp help keep the debris off the top of the sand or do I need to administer other types of suction cleaning?

thanks!!

If you use a wide-mouth gravel vac, just keep your thumb close to the end of the tube...when too much sand gets suched up, stop the flow.

The water will stay in the siphon, and the sand will drop back down.:proud:

If you want to keep your sanity, you will give up on the idea of clean sand. Shrimp poop like nobody's business.
