Gravel Vac.

Postby Stina » Thu May 15, 2008 4:42 pm

I just read somewere online, not to use a gravel vac. unless you had a under gravel filter. :-? :-?

I vac. my gravel every time I do a water change, and I don't have a undergravel filter.

I thought you should every water change regardless of what kind of filter you have.

Any comments ? :fish:

Stina, whoever said not to use a gravel vac is gravely mistaken. If you have gravel it should be common practice to vacuum it. If you have sand it should be common practice to stir it up or jet it like I do. All that waste just sitting on the bottom of the tank is... well... stupid... :D

I hope this helps in your decision to keep using your gravel vac :)
