gravel vacuum vs decorations?
So I'm wondering - I was adding a little decor the the aquarium and ended up covering so much of the gravel (I have a very tall skinny aquarium) I am wondering how much vacuuming I'm actually going to be able to do. What's the general idea here, am I supposed to be taking the decorations OUT to vacuum the tank??
In particular, I have one of this 14" tall round roman temples which takes up almost half of my floor space (I got it so I could put a bowl with gravel and plants on top of it and create a second "floor" closer to the surface) - that thing covers so much surface area, I don't know how much waste could really get in underneath it, and also, it would be a huge (apocalyptic from the fishes perspective) thing to pull it all the way out of the aquarium all the time.
Whats the general rule for vacuuming and decorations, and especially giant decorations?
