    Hum. This sounds interesting. Could you elaborate a little more? how, exactly, do you put this together? And do you think it would work in a 90 gallon? THANKS!

    Just make sure whatever it is, it telescopes open. Make sure the pump is strong enought to reach whatever depth you are trying to reach.

    I would say do your water change first using the aqueon to siphon water out, drain out the water then use a battery operated vac -like this http://www.eheim.com/en_GB/products/.../quick_vac_pro- so that you're not getting the battery wet.
    Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.
