I have a manual siphon I got from Petsmart - you put the big end in the tank, pump it up and down a few times to get the water into the tube (which is in a bucket on the floor) and once the water starts flowing, you just stick the large end all the way into the gravel - the siphon sucks up the yucky stuff at the bottom but isn't strong enough to pull out the gravel. I usually clean the gravel where my fish congregate the most & where I know uneaten food drops. I don't remember how much it cost but it wasn't that expensive.
