Surely any industrial spec hoover capable of sucking up water would fit the bill something by Vax or Henry maybe?

Thanks for the response's I was not thinking of anything on such a large scale, i dont want to remove the contents of the tank, but rather some gentle hovering to clear up bits and bobs

It works great. When we were at TGM recently they did this with a large industrial vac. It created a sort of inverted whirl pool and sucked offany debris from the surface. Worked very well indeed, and didn't take too much water either.

I missed it but I've seen it used before in reef tanks to harvest surface scum before restarting skimmers when doing maintenance.

You can get a similar one from ebay. Slightly different build but cheaper. Are you looking to hoover the surface of water or the surface of substrate? If's it's the water surface then I suggest just use a net.
