Does anybody else use a turkey baster for cleaning?
Gravel vacuums cause a tidal wave in my smaller five gallon tank, so I use a turkey baster.
My african dwarf frog misses a lot of his Top Fin frog, newt and toad pellets, so they grow white fungus on them. I found a turkey baster can suck them up, but it also sucks up the water too, so you have to dump a bit of water out when doing it... but I guess its okay if you're doing a water change.
Someone also mentioned cleaning gravel with it on another forum- how are you supposed to clean gravel? It sucks it up, then you have to baste the water, including the gravel down the sink? Then you are losing gravel? X_X
