I do water and gravel syphons once a week. After about 3 or 4 the bottom is pretty gross with fish waste. Besides scooping it out with a net is there anything I can to limit this?

Are you talking about your 75 gallon with Oscars and Pleco in it? Those are some messy fish. Maybe try gravel vacuuming twice a week.
