Today I did the first real deep cleaning of the tank and broken it down entirely. When doing maintenance like this, you really are able see why having a well planned tank is so critical.
Because my entire "aquascape" is just a single rock, I was able to pull it all at once without making a mess. I cleaned all of the glass, replaced all of the filtration, cleaned the pump, stirred up the sand, and did a 100% water change.
With the move to Madison right around the corner, it is important to get this done so any jostling in the truck doesn't stir up detritus and cause a mini-cycle.
