Try a turkey baster, they're great for getting into nooks and crannys and are ideal for removing leftover food etc :)

Something else you could try doing is use a small dish or the jar method when feeding. This will reduce waste and make cleaning easier.

Cheers

Hi capek36,

The turkey baster is great for spot-cxleaning, but you should have a siphon for general cleaning, too. This is good for "vacuuming" the entire tank floor.
