And do use a turkey baster instead of ph. I used a MaxiJet1200 last week to blow detritus off my rock before a pwc. I knocked a few corals off their plugs and/or rock. I found most but lost 2 in the rockwork/sandbed.

Funny you mention that. I just changed my PWC "pump" to a MaxiJet 1200 from a 900 to speed things up. I normally blast my rocks off with the incoming flow from the pump as I put the water back in. I didn't loose anything because it's all glued down good, but there were sure some unhappy campers until I realized how strong the flow was!

I've since gone back to using the MaxiJet 900 which is much nicer on everyone!

I think the flow actually snapped one of the corals off it's base. There's a bit left on the base and I beleive that will now gorw out over time. But I guess I should order a 900 on my next order just to be safe(r). I'll still use the MJ1200 for the pwc until I decide to buy something bigger.
