With my tank there is no longer a need to vaccum the substrate at all. The snails/conch's/Goby/Shrimp all keep my sand clean for me. And there is not really any algae growth at all since water conditions are kept prestine.
C'mon chicken! Lol, give it a taste! Ha, ewwwwww!
I had no idea that SW
tanks didn't need vac'd. How about that!
In the interests of full disclosure, my desire to have a comletely carpeted substrate is due to the fact that I hate gravel vacs. PWC
's I don't mind but vacs, ugh! I soooo need a python.
