cleaning biotope like tanks

Recommended Posts

hello all. quick question. im setting up an 8x2x2 and am gonna set it up with lots of driftwood. how do you all with biotopes etc clean your tanks without moving all your rocks, wood and ornaments. ive seen a few tanks and they look like they havent moved in years :roll: do you just leave the waste settle behind rocks and whatnot, or constantly rescape to clean the poo up?

cheers kurt

Depends how it's all setup. I don't vac my smaller tanks because the fish waste just breaks down and I'd lose too much of the good stuff (mulm/peat/organisms) if I vacuumed. My eartheater tank gets vacuumed to remove the faeces from the larger fish, but being an Eartheater tank it's setup to have as much open sand as possible, so that makes vacuuming easy.
