The substrate 12 may comprise gravel, rocks or other like material, and may be located within the funnel 10. However, if the substrate 12 falls to the bottom of the funnel 10, the substrate can clog the funnel, and the self-contained cleaning device may be inoperable, preventing the suction created by the pull of the water within the aquarium tank and debris through the bottom of the funnel 10. Therefore, the grill 14 may be positioned between the substrate 12, and the bottom of the funnel 10 near the opening in the bottom of the funnel 10. The grill 14 may be comprised of openings small enough to prevent the substrate 12 from falling to the bottom of the funnel 10, but may preferably be large enough to allow the debris within the aquarium tank to fall through to the bottom of the funnel 10. Preferably, the grill is present to ensure that the debris may fall past the substrate 12, such as rocks and the like, and easily removable as described herein. Without the grill 14, the waste may get stuck within the spaces between the substrate making it difficult to remove the same, as water may inconsistently flow through the spaces between the substrate. Moreover, the substrate may also contain the waste therebeneath the grill 14, and keeps the debris from moving from the bottom of the funnel 10, allowing it to remain in its location for removal thereof. The substrate may further somewhat seal the funnel therebeneath, allowing the suction created by the water exchange process to focus at the location of the bottom of the funnel 10, providing the necessary force to remove the debris therefrom during the water exchange process.

On this deep dive into world of fin-fanciers, we’re going to submerge ourselves in aquarium energy use. Because fish tanks are self-contained environments, maintaining their life support system on dry land — round the clock, year ’round — can eat up a significant chunk of energy.

The present invention relates to an aquarium cleaning apparatus, and systems and methods relating to the same. In particular, a self-contained cleaning apparatus comprises a cleaning system that allows for the exchange of water in an aquarium tank by pouring water in the aquarium tank and/or pulling water out of an aquarium tank, such as via a vacuum. In a preferred embodiment, the water exchange operation occurs because of the difference between the water level of the aquarium tank, upon addition of water to the aquarium tank, and the vertical height of a spout attached to the top of a vertical tube. Therefore, it is not necessary for the user to immerse their hands in the aquarium water to operate the cleaning device.The present invention relates to an aquarium cleaning apparatus, systems and methods for removing debris from the aquarium, and in particular, a self-contained cleaning apparatus that exchanges water within an aquarium tank by pouring water into the aquarium tank and/or pulling water out of an aquarium tank, such as via a vacuum.
