Small gravel cleaner for 2 gallon betta tank?

My girlfriend has a betta and she has hardly cleaned the tank since she got it over a month ago I did one cleaning for her but her tetra wisper filters turn green after a week I told her she is over feeding . Any ways I'm looking to get her a cheap gravel cleaner ASAP that doesn't drain the water to fast her tank is a small square probably just a little under 2 gallons . Help plead all I have are big ones for my 20 and 26 gallon tank.

Use a balloon air pump. Suck in, then push out.

Yeah I dunno. I know where she's coming from lol.

Try one of your hoses, but keep the tubing bent for reduced flow.

Get a big turkey baster. Bigger opening and bigger the size the better. I use one for my 4 gallon. For 2 gallon I think it'll take no more than 5 minutes to get rid of 50% water. It works well too for getting rid of junk from your gravel.
