Any tank, regardless of size needs to be siphoned. If the tank isn't cycled it needs 100% water changes to completely remove all the toxic waste. Cycled tanks need to be siphoned and the substrate vacuumed to remove excess waste particles.

I use a siphon on all my tanks - from my 3 gal. up to & including my 75 gal.

Yup...I've seen how much mine picks up...it would get gross fast if I didn't use it.
