    Hi guys. I'm quite curious about this layer of debris underneath my soil. Where does this thing come from? Is it good if I vacuum these out of the tank?

    Looks like breakdown of aquatic soil. But could also be poop or decomposed food.

    How do I clean all these debris? It'll be pain in the *** if they're everywhere in the soil

    they are fine sand particles and fish foo... you can siphon them out using a gravel cleaner...

    Fish poo does not remain long as poo. Once there's fresh fish poo, the bacteria will get to work and 'feast' on it thus converting it to inert material after the nitriification process. Though unsightly, the resulting 'dirt' in fact acts as 'media' for bacteria too. Most hobbyists will suck it out in the process of 'cleaning' the tank.

    Can you use the vacuum cleaner that special for water and soil?
