if u have a spare canister filter, you can use it as a subtrate cleaner. Because you can use very fine filter media in the canister, you can suck up all the substrate "dust" that will not be caught by regular substrate cleaners.

The Dennerle Nano Gravel Cleaner (works on syphon but has a little hand pump to get it going) is maybe a bit small for larger areas but is great for getting into nooks and crannies between plants!

Hi @PARAGUAY I use this one occasionally to remove detritus. In the tank were I keep shrimps I put a lemon wrap in front of it so I wont suck up my shrimplets by accident - works well as long as you can avoid sucking up gravel :)

Cheers,
Michael
