Tip for using Eheim Quick Vac Pro

There is a way use this vacuum cleaner to pick up more detritus and reduce cloudiness in your tank. The normal problem when using your Eheim vac is that you have fine particles getting past the mesh screen thereby causing cloudiness in your tank.

By grabbing two standard sized sheets of kitchen paper towels, like Brawny or whatever. Wrap it tightly around the mesh basket area of the vacuum. Then, bind it with three rubber bands with two on the ends and one in the middle.

You should be set.

I was able to solidly fill my basket up with the detritus and muck from my dirty, dirty gravel bed. It was the first time that I was able to do this. This will change your mind about this vacuum cleaner.

So, if you have one of these Eheim Quick Vac Pros, give it a try.

Be patient and stay calm. Don't stress out because chances are you will panic and do something drastic, hence hurting or killing your fish.

Don't forget to cycle your tank- either with or without fish in(preferably without).

When raising fry, stay on top of your water changes.

Quarantine all new fish for 1 months before adding to the tank.

^had to learn that the hard way.

Always add dechlorinator to new water during a water change if you use tap water.

If you have any Cory catfish, do not but a shell that they can fit in into the tank.
Because they will explore the inside of the shell and get stuck. Happens to me twice they don't live when that happens
