The "under the rim" suggestion is spot on. I got quite a bit from there with paper towels as mentioned. Never thought of a wet/dry vac, though. Interesting for maybe a larger tank.

Ruby tetras are tiny and maybe you could do 5, but that is a really small tank. I would do 3 male endlers and leave it at that, unless you want to add a few RCS. Tank is too small to start breeding...
