exactly. Im quite the lazy guy too, and when i heard i had to vacume the tank, and do water changes, i was like damn for a bunch of fish this is gonna be some maintenance. Then i realized it can be done at the same time, whoever thought of that is amazingwinkyee said:I think as long as you're taking water out , you might as well be taking all the trash you can and vacuum at the same time.
Very true.. Try and never dig more than 3" deep when vaccuming gravel. Even though it does get dirty and looks filthy, taking out all waste eliminates most/some bacteria that helps the biological balance throughout the tank.bgshortys said:I do half the gravel every week during my water change. I heard that you can destroy some of the bacteria if you mix it up too much
