Yeah, I use a gravel vacuum with the tube leading outside to my garden when I do water changes. I have a good bit of funk on my gravel right now, and I can't get it all out with just the regular water changes.
I am looking for a way to clean the gravel without having to drain any water. The pump I saw at Petsmart was a battery powered gadget with some sort of pouch to catch the debris. It didn't remove any water from the tank, just cycled it through this pouch then back into the tank. It's $60, and I didn't know if it was worth the money. Or if ya'll had any other suggestions.
