Step 6: Done
CLEANING! Every few week at least to avoid hair and slime from clogging the pump and getting the water disgusting.
I take the small container to the sink and dump the water out and hold the rocks in to container. I put a little fruit and vegetable soap on the rocks, add water and shake/agitate the rocks until good and sudsy. Then I fill, rinse, dump and repeat until the water is clear.
The pump get gets removed and cleaned. The intake usually has crud in it and the cord that is submerged needs a wipe down with the sudsy water.
Hope someone gives it a try.
If I can get a pic or two of the critters drinking from it I will post those as well.
