Cleaning rocks weekly

#3
I probably do this weekly. The amount of crud that comes out of the rock pores is crazy. I don't have a high flow tank so I'm sure it's prone to more accumulation of detritus. I go at it pretty good immediately before water change as well.

Sounds tiring. :p

I'm not saying you shouldn't do it but let the flow and clean up crew do that for you as much as possible.

Maybe for a tank your size! :) I have a 39g cube so no biggie and beside I feel like the corals feed off some of the crud blown out of the rockwork.
