I use a turkey baster to get the poop out. It seems to work really well. In a small tank like mine (5gal) the cheap gravel vacs really don't work well and I just end up ripping the tank apart with them trying to get the stuff. :P

BETTAS:
Robert Falcon Scott - Red salamander HM plakat
Passed on- Friedrich "Freedy"

OTHER CRITTERS:
Four African Dwarf Frogs - Dorkus, Sporkus, Baron(ess), and Bubbles!

Just wondering, how did the pet store people possibly sell any fish to a first timer (assumed) WITHOUT WATER CONDITIONER?!?!? That is just plain stupid on their part. If you don't have Conditioner, let the water sit in buckets for 4-5 days before adding it to the tank. If u get WC, the water needs to age for 12+ hrs. Good luck!!!
