Snail poo is less toxic than decaying food and with all the plants and so few fry the levels shouldn't raise too fast in a 10gal tank-I couldn't find if you posted your method...but-if the tank is only half full-adding 1gal of like temp dechlorinated water each day may be better than siphoning at this point...this will dilute the water and once full then start the siphoning of the waste and then the fry will be bigger...they can grow pretty fast....lol....

Put an air stone on the end of an air line and get a siphon going..
When or if the fry get sucked against the air stone and that's all..

But will it get the other junk out? (like the snail poo?) By the way I have counted about 11 or 12 fry.. they are hiding in the hornwort so it is hard to see them, but they are more active every day. They'll be a week old tomorrow! This is so cool!

It's not going to get anything out right now but as long as there's no over feeding it is more important to get fresh water in there then it is to clean the bottom right now.. Then once the fry get a decent size you can start cleaning.
Plus if you have snails your good, they turn a lot of harmful waste into a lot less harmful. And if your tank is cycled and has a filter, Then you just need to get some fresh water in there for now..
