Ok I have have my first sump set up, and it has been set up for about 3 weeks I guess. It is a 23g clear rubbermaid tub. I have about 20g of water in it.
I am wanting to do a water change, and I am wondering what the best way is. I have a bunch of brown stuff built up in the sump, like dirt, is this normal? I have a siphon hose (not a python) you pump under water and it sucks water. The problem is that the container needs to be lower to start the suction, and that is not possible because the sump is on the floor. I know this is a total newb question.
