Leave them in, just keep the siphon low to the gravel when changing vacuum locations and it will reduce the chance of a fish getting too curious.

Sucking up Alvin would be very bad, as funny as it might be, it would be very bad! Sorry I have a weird sense of humor!

How long did you acclimate them? Inverts are much more sensitive than fish when being brought into new conditions.

I did a drip acclimation for 30 minutes. Probably should've done it for an hour :/

When I did my SW cleaner shrimp I dripped for 3.5 hours I would pinpoint it to a short acclimation.

I wraps a rubber band around a filter bag covering the intake of my siphon. If you give it enough slack the bag will get sucked inside the siphon and collect detritus. 100% fish safe although it does cut down on flow a bit
