    Does someone make a way to siphon crap off thebottom of the tank through a filter sock or something and circulate back to the tank? Just looking for a quick way to do bottom cleaning between WC's rather than stirring all the goop up into the water column.

    I am just starting a new 56G tank (30x18x24h) and this time used 60lb of live Argonite (fiji pink) sand. The guy from the LFS told me (and it states on the bag) that I don't and shouldn't rinse the live sand before placing in the tank. Well, my tank is so cloudy (24hrs have gone by) I don't...
