If you find it to be a pain, swap it out. The hobby should be enjoyable and I see no reason to keep anything that aggravates you.

i agree 100% i bought a tank with an undergravel filter and removed it before i set it up,
Although some poeple like to use them....ive never used one so i cant give advice but im sure someone will..

Personally I don't like Under Gravel Filters. Never could get on with them. Much prefer internal/external filters and a thin layer of gravel for aesthetic purposes Smile

I'd get rid of it, I picked up a second hand tank with an undergravel filter a few months ago but scrapped it after a few weeks and got an internal.
