Rebuild 40 breeder softy/LPS

Do it as needed, they will start to backup when they need cleaning. I avoid them whenever possible as mine only lasted 3 days.
Panty hose gets the big stuff, but doesn't catch that brown sediment like a sock does.

So what do you use to filter particulates? Anything at all?

I let them settle in a big 40 gallon trash can/sump, then siphon it out occasionally.

On that note, if siphon is unavailable because the sump is on floor level, is there a certain type of inline pump to aid in vacuuming this stuff out? My sump is filthy...

I've always just used a small maxijet pump if I can't get a syphon.

Ugh flatworms. Little rust colored specs of mayhem. Will be pickin up an ORA Pygmy filefish as my LFS said they will be helpful in eradication.
