    Stirred up detritus ??

    Hey all, I noticed that some of my chaeto in the sump was turning white. So, I decided to remove it. When I took it out, I stirred a substantial amount of detritus. Just cleaned the sump earlier in the during my water change, so it's not terrible, but definitely a "sand storm" of detritus. I...
