    Cleaning

    I just got a vacuum to clean solids off the bottom of my 175 gallon IBC made fish tank. It is a pool and spa vacuum made by Game. I bought it on Amazon and it works great. Easy to use and no falling out of particles as you pull it out of the tank. I think this was $40 well spent.

    Re: Cleaning

    Glad to hear Roger, and thanks for sharing; gives me an idea - I have a pool vacuum that I can use the same way if need be. Give it double duty and get more for my money. The tank is very clean atm, but them dirty fish will eventually muck it up.

    I was using a shop vac Don but it pulled to much water out. This you can pump the water out befor pulling it out of the tank.

    Re: Cleaning

    So what you are saying is you have started a "MAID SERVICE"... for septic situations and you vacuum sh*t for $40 bucks or maybe I have miss-read.. You don't use the washer and dryer on the fish do you

    Hey, as long as it does the job that's what matters.

    I just let them clean up their own mess so I don't have to
