If you are using a Python type gravel vacuum, you shouldn't need to stir up the gravel ahead of time. You can use a single edge razor blade (glass tanks only) for the buildup along the bottom edge of the tank.

I find it common to have some slight cloudiness after starting up a cleaned filter because any gunk in the hoses and tubes gets a burst of water which flushes out the debris. You could use a net filled with floss and hold it on the filter output before plugging the filter back into the power source or clean out the hoses and tubes more often.

Thanks, good idea with the net. I have not cleaned the hoses yet (6 months). Maybe I should do that.
