| || | How do i clean 220 gallon decroated tank?
hi, i'm new here, but i have been in the hobby for a long while, but all my tanks are plain, and i really want my 220 to have gravel and drift wood, nothing extreme, just simple decroating, the problem is if i do put gravels, it would mean i have to siphon the poop every week or so, since i would have to remove the 3300L/H circulation pump which would have pick up the poo and drops to the sump. but i've seen youtube videos where 1500 gallons don't have the advantage to stick your head in and siphon, so i was wondering there should be a way to get around it, (by the way it is impossible for me to siphon too if my tank was to have gravels, since the canopy won't open to full and i can't reach to the other side of the tank with out half of my body sticking in it, the canopy weight is 67 pound so i can't take it out easy) so please if anyone knows the solution could reply here i'd be very thankful.
and pictures are attached when tank first arrived ( few years ago lol
