tips on siphoning spawning tank pls.

from the bettas spawning, there is a bunch of brown stuff on the bottom of the tank. i assume its feeces.

once the fry have just become free swimming (they are so tiny) how do you siphon the junk without sucking up the fry? are there any tricks? do you wait till the fry get bigger? (if so how long?) or do you just do your best and try not to suck them up?
