Remove all the gravel from your aquarium and put it in a mix of water and bleach. Be sure the bleach is pure and doesn’t include any scents. This will quickly kill the algae, but before you put the gravel back in your tank, you will need to get rid of the chlorine. Rinse the gravel several times in tap water, then submerge it in water again.
There are two tools aquarium hobbyists will use for cleaning their gravel. Aquarium siphons usually have a thick, plastic tube or "siphon" with a thin, flexible, tube attached to one end. Some of these may have a priming ball attached to one end. Plastic, flexible tubes can also be used to clean gravel.
The TOM Aquarium Gravel Vacuum from Koller Products is available in various sizes to suit your tank. The 12-inch model is perfect for small aquariums. It comes with a 5-foot-long removable hose. Just above the main tube is a black pump.
For your aquarium with sand or fine gravel substrate, the Boxtech Aquarium gravel and sand cleaner kit is a fantastic option. It comes with an air-pressing button for easy water flow control and a controller clamp for an easy, mess-free cleaning project.
Our final pick is the COODIA Electric Auto Aquarium Gravel Cleaner. This is a 4-in-1 sludge, algae, and debris remover that also doubles as a water changer. It runs on a safe 12 volts, though it only has an eight-watt motor. Unfortunately, the motor is not as strong as in the other options we have described.
