Iclean the gravel w/ a gravel tube every time i change the water. U should do this to keep your ammonia levels down. Ciclids are messy. The cleaner the tank the healthier the fish.

If you feed alot, you should vac every week to every other week. My substrate is crushed coral so i wait till i see waste and then i vac when i see excess waste.
