Gravel cleaning cheat

johnbirg

Hi,
Just a quick idea for cleaning gravel using a canister filter if you run one.
Several weeks ago a friend with a 30 gallon was complaining that he was having trouble vacuuming all of his gravel because it was removing too much water using the syphon. He is running an eheim canister filter in his tank. We got some flexible hose and hooked up the bottom of the syphon to it then connected that to the intake of the canister filter. Cleaned the gravel really well. Of course we had to service the filter afterwards but it works without removing water from the tank.
