Hi guys does anyone have any tricks as to getting the flow of a tank to stir stuff off the bottom? My tank is fairly deep at 36" and and I'm running 3 korralia 1400's problem is I get awesome flow around the top and middle but nothing is stirring on the bottom and I can see lots of crud down there. I can't really point a power heads down because I have really fine sand and it will blow all over.
Hey Doug this is my 125g I'm talking about. I wouldn't say it's food just looks like well crud on the bottom. Is there any DIY contraption or something I can do to make some of my current hit the bottom? Like I said pointing my power heads down won't work because of my fine sand and my flow throughout the upper level is awesome
Maybe try running you return pomp along the bottom of the tank modify an engines canes ter return tube lfs $8 they have a bunch of perforated holes in them that might give you just what you are looking for

I wouldn't advise doing that. In the event of a power outage the return will back siphon until it reaches those perforations, or perhaps even further if they don't break the siphon. You'll empty your tank.
