i wouldnt say its therapeutic but its calming to gravel vac my 5g tank. i hate greavel vac cleaning my 5g but got no choice with 2 bettas (one passed last night) and a nerite on the filter side in the 5b. it takes me 2 hours or so and changinf 3g of water along with it. i dont really feel pressed to rush with the 5g cleaning as much as a 100wc on the smaller uncycled tanks.
i do feel some releif knows i have a few days off from WC after all 3 smaller tanks are done.
