I'm just curious what everyone thinks is the best way to clean a non-planted tank. I have a 16 gallon divided, and two 5 gallons, and I feel like I'm not cleaning it right. I have a siphon and two five gallon buckets that I use to take most of the water out with, but I feel like I cant get to stuff stuck in the stones.
Also, for people who have ghost shrimp or cory cats, do you take them out when you clean or leave them in?
Also, do you guys take your bettas out to do a water change or leave them in? And do you turn off your heaters while doing this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
