gray detritus building up


S.I.C.

Recommended Posts

Detritus is building up and the snails and crabs I have do around it. Yes, I can brush it off the rocks, siphon it from the gravel, etc..... My snails are always on the glass not the rock.

 

Is there a lazy mans approach to reduce the amount in the tank?

 

Maybe something that actually eats the stuff.

Nothing I have found cleans it up. I usually just run a filter with floss for a few days and keep it stirred up with a turkey baster until the majority is removed. I am contemplating running floss 24/7 depending on the input in this thread.

I've had much less detritus build up since seeding my sand with good live sand (full of worms & critters), and increasing the flow.

I agree, low flow will allow detritus to settle. Increase flow and use good mechanical filtration. I sometimes even take out a couple of rocks during water change and shake them in the removed water.
