Hello. So I have a gravel vaccum I use weekly to do my water changes with. The problem is I never feel like I get "It all". I can only change out 20 gallons of a 55 gallon tank. I have 3 inch gravel. Using the gravel vaccum as a siphon I can drain 5 gallons in about 1 min. This is also a planted tank so I have to be careful and go slow.
My Idea is to use the gravel vaccum, pump and a small canister filter, to be able to filter the debris out and pump the water back into the tank some what clean.
Does anyone have a system like this?
What are the con's to a system like this?
What kind of filter should I use? or just make a gravity fed floss filter out of pvc
Even if I got a ro
system I still would have to pre filter the water of debris, right?
