Vacuuming the sand bed.


Recommended Posts

i have a shallow bed, aprox 1" and get around to vacuuming every few months or so. You should see the junk that gets pulled out! I have rigged up a filter sock that sits in the sump and place the hose into it so I can vacuum for awhile an never have to empty anything.


I know plenty of other reefers that never touch their sandbed, so I think its just a personal preference depending upon what type of bed, and how deep. I would NEVER vacuum a deep sand bed.
