You could switch out your CC. I did it in my tank with fish and LR in my tank. I did about 1/3 of my tank per week. It was a little messy but it worked, now I am much happier.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I would get the CC out and go with sand and also keeping your cleaning crew up will help keep the leftovers down. Most of us forget to keep our cleaning crews populated. Reduced feedings and increased PWCs sound like a good solution to your problem!

Sounds like my weekend project is to get the cc out. Thanks to all for the continued edification.
