When you clean your tanks do you take out all your ornaments and rinse them or just clean around them?
Depends. We end up moving around and rinsing off the objects every couple months. But we don’t clean the sump when we do it.
I don’t really have any ornaments to clean (rocks and driftwood) so I clean around. When I had fake stuff like hides, I would rinse off if they looked dirty.
I mainly clean around them…once a month or so, I will take out the ornaments and give them a quick scrub down, wipe all the algae and gunk off all the surfaces and return to the tank before completing the water change…
Most ornaments are dishwasher safe … top shelf .. no soap (duh) works great if you do them all at once anways.
When I do the “big clean” I’ll take them out and give them a rinse and a light scrub. Nothing crazy, just to get some of the slime off. When I just vacuum I just do the gravel and around my deco.
