Do you 'vacuum' your sand to get rid of grunge that has settled in?
Should the sand be 'vacuumed'?

Then why do they sell the vacuums? Are they for freshwater only? Hmmm

that same question could be asked for about half of the products on the market today for aquariums. but gravel vacs do have their uses, they are meant more for fw tanks and tanks that have course gravel in them, or even sw tanks that the owner wishes to vacuum during weekly water changes. but IMO when done correctly, there really shouldn't be a need to vacuum the sand in a sw tank
