So i'm probably, finally, going to get a vacuum today but I need to know which one to get...It seems that petsmart only has two. I couldn't find any at petco, but if you know of any please let me know. =)
I would just get the smallest gravel vacumn you can find. I think I have the small top fin one and it was like $7 (would have gotten the XS but they were out) and it's done fine in my 10 gallon. It's supposed to start if you pump it underwater so you don't have to suck on it but sucking is a lot easier.
Okay I will look for the smallest one I can find. I am trying to get a bigger tank but all seem to be so expensive, at petsmart and petco anyways. I want to get a 10 gal or 20 gal. But I don't want to spend over $60.
I just start the siphon with my mouth. It's a lot quicker, and doesn't gross me out at all. Honestly, it's no different than accidentally swallowing lake water. Actually, my water is probably cleaner. LOL!
