Hi all. I just finished bi-annual sump cleaning. Twice a year I remove all of the LR
rubble, take the sump out and completely empty it and rinse it. I noticed a lot of detritus in the bottom of all three sump chambers. I am sure this expalins my recent NO3
reading of almost 10ppm. When NO3
starts to climb I know it is time to clean the sump. My LFS
suggested I turn off the sump pump when feeding so it does not draw the food into the sump. Anyone else out there stop your pumps during feeding? To me it makes sense. It may help keep my sump cleaner, longer.
What do you think? Thanks! Lando
