Hmmm I guess it can be hard to explain. I get it too when gravel vac my tank. It's just sort of like a bunch of poop put together in gunk and stuff I dont know if thats what it is but thats how i can explain it. Sort of like ' dust ' wads haha I dont know. Just poop that settles into the gravel and gets together and you vaccum it up and it just shoots up. When it goes into the bucket, I mean, I have a lot...I just really dont know how to explain it..
