This is in my 29 gallon tank. Is it too deep??
I think it's fine, but you'll have to dig deeper when vacuuming up gunk once it starts to accumulate.
Yea....that is pretty deep.
I had to get 50 pounds of gravel, but I banked it up in the back. The front isn’t as deep.
Is it ok if I just stir it up when I clean?
Okay thank you
You'll end up with a lot of gunk floating around in the water. It's better just to push the end of your vacuum end of your siphon deep into the gravel and avoid stirring too much.
Ok! I have a really long siphon that can reach to the bottom. So I’m assuming that will work. Thanks so much
Over 3" you risk anaerobic bacteria that generates hydrogen sulfide gas.
I think I am going to take some of the gravel out anyways
I can't think of a reason why you would want to have more than 1" of gravel. Just dig deeper with your siphon.
