Gravel substrate, whether tiny shards or river rock pebbles, require cleaning much as decorative rocks do, except you'll use an aquarium vacuum instead of a scraper or scrubber. Dig the vacuum head deep into the gravel to capture organic waste that has filtered to the bottom. Clean about one-third of the gravel at each water change to avoid stirring up too much debris. If it's necessary to remove all of the gravel at one time to clean it, such as in the cases of severe algae blooms or cycling the tank from scratch, set aside a small amount of dirty gravel and mix it in with the cleaned gravel to restart the beneficial bacteria colony. Clean the gravel by putting it in a bucket and rinsing it under running water until it runs clear.
