My live rock seems to get a lot of detritus, I think primarily from filter feeders etc that live in the rock. I know that some people use turkey basters etc to blast a lot of gunk out during water changes. I have an 8 gal which makes this a little difficult due to small water volume (by the time i suction out everything floating there would be no water left!) I only have 4 pieces of LR, 2 of which are in contact with the sandbed - top 2 can come out and go back without major disruptions.
Anyone practicing this method? Had good results with this? really bad idea for some reason I am not thinking of?
