Diy Filter Intake On Bottom Of Tank?

Recommended Posts

Would it make sense to extend the filter intake tube of my HOB filter and attach an upside down T with holes so it would suck gunk right off the bottom? Or would this make the suction of the intake too weak?

Or at least to have a few small areas where it takes the water and gunk in, so I could be able to suck the pleco's poop right out of his cave where he spends about 16 hours a day? Or maybe I should just leave the main filter alone and add another smaller like 20gallon filter where I extend the intake with flexible tubing into the pleco's cave?
