i turn filter off, trim, then net...takes ages...

once under control smaller trims are easier.

sometimes I pull chunks out which leave gaps to be filled in by future growth. doesn't look go though.

hmmm, i might try to build myself a super mini net! I already have some netting...

Thanks, any other suggestions anyone?

i've got a tiny net from LFS for 0.79p i think. might be worth a go

i've tried to do it whilst syphoning... but I haven't got enough hand plus the syphon gets blocked easily. although with 12/16mm pipe it might work, but you would have to be quick. :D

I'd like a solution to this, I'm hoping to keep the hc low in the scape I'm working on at the mo.

Simply give it a "flat top" and carefully surface skim with a wet and dry vacuum. This normally clears our 150ltr in less than a minute.
