    How to clean CaribSea Eco-Complete

    Does anyone have experience with using CaribSea Eco-Complete substrate? I've had it in my 20 gallon for about a year and am unsure how to keep it clean. When my cory cats swim by a cloud of mulm floats up and stays floating or settles on the plants/decor. The substrate is too fine to siphon clean so I seem to be left with a bunch of debris accumulating from fish and snail waste, and I'm worried over time it's affecting my fish as well as the overall appearance of my tank.

    Vacuum the sand when water change.. miss. you can also tie a turkey blaster to the tube and pump the sand and let the vacuum take up the cloud of dust right away.

    I never do. I have hundreds of MTS that take care of that for me.
