Real dumb question here. I'm looking to set up a small 5gal tank for a betta and possibly move a small bristlenose pleco from my other tank to this one, and i have a simple question. How do you guys clean the substrate in your small betta tanks? I use something like the python vacuum that attaches to my kitchen sink for my bigger tank, but I get the feeling that if I use this in a 5Gal tank i'll destroy it when I start it!
Sorry for such a dumb question, but I want to be informed before I set up the tank to plan it right. I want a planted tank for the little guy.
