I know I have said this on like a billion other thread already, but this is such a handy tool for any tank. Turkey Baster. They cost a dollar and I use mine all the time. If you don't have one, get one. Not only is it good for cleaning up small messes in your substrate, they are great to bypass your betta with food for the bottom feeders in order to give them time to get to it before he does! If you have a sick, visually impared, or just plain lazy bottom feeder, you can drop the food right in front of them!
I have a Ghost Shrimp who eats 1 Betta Pellet every day. I just get the pellet wet, suck it up and the turkey baster, and get it to him. Works like a charm!
When my guys get playful and end up getting sand all over orniments in my tank, I suck water up in my baster and use it to "dust" my decor!
When I am doing water chem test, I get my water using my baster (after rinsing it of corse) to get a perfect amount every time!
