Get a temporary container to put the fish in. Pour some dechlorinated water in it. Put the fish in the container. You can catch him with either the cup he came in or a net. Then empty out all the water from your tank or bowl. Dump the rocks or gravel in a collander that you have bought specifically for this purpose.Rinse gravel or rocks good with hot water. Rinse decorations too, if you have some. Then rinse the bowl or tank good with hot water. You can wipe it out with a few paper towels also. Then rinse again. Put the gravel or rocks and decorations back into the tank or bowl. Pour dechlorinated water back into the tank or bowl. Then put the fish back in. Make sure the water isn't cold.

In a tank that size I would just use a turkey baster for normal cleanings. I also wouldn't do complete water changes. Maybe do like 75% 2 times a week, this way the fish can stay in the water and it causes less stress. This is what my fish have gotten use to so they don't mind my hand messing with their tank, but some fish would rather just be taken out. This is just what works for me... eventually you will develop your own process.
