turkey baster dust storm
ok, so i hate when there's sand and stuff on my live rock, i feel like its preventing coraline and other things from getting light and such. so i use my turkey baster probably once a week or more and blast it off the rock, its just sand and what ever else has settled. or whatever else the hermits and tube worms have deposited.
Then i do a water change while the tank is still cloudy. In my head i'm thinking, this is good, it gets the junk off the rock, stirs things up to get rid of uneaten food, and puts particles in the water for all my little filter feeders.
But i just want to be sure this isn't a bad thing. the water only stays cloudy for about 5 or 10 minutes, and cloudy isnt really a good word, i can still see through my tank with out a problem, its just less crisp and clean looking.
Sorry for long post. I'm probably just overthinking it. But i thought I'd ask if this was a problem or if it is in fact an ok thing.
Thanks in advance! I dont know what i would do with out you guys! its so wonderful to just be able to ask every little question that I have and know that the response is well educated and from people who care and have hoards of experience!
