The big one about 5cm, the normal one same as you. The big one even takes hair algae off the leaves.
Airline piping vaccuums slower. Try that. Sometimes i use it for gravel vacs

This is why I love sand
Should sand be vacuumed?
I don't. Just stir it a little

It's real difficult to find eh?
I think depends on tank and the fish
If heavily planted, a light vacuum with care not to disturb the sand and plants too much
In a cichlid or other messy fish tank, you need to do proper gravel vacs
I turn my tank upside down when I vacuum.
Hahaha.. so do we!!
Thats why i keep plants that are tied to wood and rocks!!
And when i dont turn it upside down doing gravel vacs.. my fish do it for me...
many moons ago I planted stems and vallis in pots .. that way I could "remove" the pots when doing a vac .. these day I just do not vac a planted tank.
How do you get all the nasty stuff out?
Today .. reduce what you feed .. find a brand / food that works for you and the type of fish you have. I am still in that experimental phase so trying all sorts to improve water stability get the balance etc without the need for a vac.
Another nice hot day here.
What about the poop?
Breaks apart eventually
This is new to me...don't think I want to try this method.
Fish poop disintegrates and goes into the filter. It's much easier than gravel
Tanks are a closed system and are a relatively small volume of water.
Unless you have very very few fish for the volumne of water in a heavily planted tank, there will always be the need to remove waste.
I would agree. I can't see myself not removing the waste out of my tank.
