As recommended by Tex Gal, do not overfeed. When you do NOT overfeed, the gravel surface remains very very clean. But when there was a need to clean, I found Penn-Plax's Air-Vac to be quite effective:

Oh, I almost forgot my clean-up crew - the pond snails. They do a very good job at picking up any left over. Thus, the gravel surface remains spotless.
Hey I liked the looks of that vacuum. I ordered one form Big Al's for 5.49. I have the battery operated one from Eheim but sometimes it does not do well in shallow tanks.
Thanks for the post.
