Very nice work. I love it.
thanks I use a long piece of airline tubing as a siphon. It's also what I use on my 7g as it doesn't suck in the water as fast so I can clean through the whole tank without losing more than 20% of the water. Occasionally, I do have to use a larger siphon tube to get a deeper cleaning and end up doing a 40-50% water change... even with reducing the flow with my thumb partially over the end of the tube.

What do you have in the tank with the snails?

ps- did you see this?
