I started thinking about the flow of water in my 75 and where i normally get detritus building up so i started turning the outlet on my canister filter either a couple hours before or the day before i do a water change and it definitely stirs some small particles up and it appears that the filters (canister and HOB) intake is picking up quite a bit of it as im really vacuuming very little each week. Just wondering if anyone else does this

I used to have power heads on timers in some of my tanks. I kept Galaxias and rainbowfish and they spend some time swimming into currents. So I had a couple of power heads in each tank and they came on for an hour, several times a day. When both pumps were running at the same time, they created a lot of movement in the tank and anything that wasn't stuck in the substrate was stirred up pretty well.
