I really don't want to do 100% water changes because that'll involve me moving the tank to the sink and just won't work in the office.
also any recommendations on test kits, i don't really like those strips...
The generic gravel vacs that Petsmart or Petco sells will work just fine. I have a few that have been with me from the start of my fishkeeping hobby.
The API Master Freshwater liquid test kit is one of the best around. But they are rather expensive. If you don't plan to cycle your tank, just get the pH and ammonia kits.
