Gravel vacuum that won't remove water?

Recommended Posts

Alright folks, does this type of device exist?

My pea puffer tank gets messy pretty quickly. I used to think I had a snail poop problem, but with my snail population at an all time low but this debris still running rampant, I am in need of a solution. I think my driftwood is like shedding or something. It's like wet sawdust at the base of the driftwood. 

I have no problem doing water changes with gravel vacuuming, but one change doesn't get everything no matter how hard I try. I am checking my water daily to make sure there is no ammonia or nitrites and nitrates are at a minimum and that hasn't been an issue. I don't want to upset my fish but draining and refilling my tank more than once in a single sitting. I just want to suck up all the garbage but keep my water. 

Does such a device exist?
