    How do I clean the bottom of my tank? I have been using a siphon, but recently someone told me when I do that I am lowering the amount of copods in my tank. Is this true? Should I use another method? A little help please.:help:

    Anyone know how deep sand sifter-type fishies like their sand? I am in the process of moving my 75 gallon tank and thinking of starting over with sugar fine sand so that I can get a sand sifter (goby?) Since the live sand I had is now dead sand, this would be the time for me to switch over...

    :wavey: Heres a tip for those of us who vacuum our sand regulary but want to reuse the water. When you vacuum place a old colinder or strainer over the bucket and line it with fine filter floss.
