Good thing you didn't lose any fish!

It happened once to my pond too, when my grandpa opened the drainage to lower the water level after an overnight rain and forgot to close it. Found it with only 4 or 5 inches of water left. I was like .

if you put hydrogen peroxide on carpet stains it instantly removes them( at least brand new ones as far as i know) but i bet it will remove any odors really well

Willow,, You would think it would only take once for this to happen for one to become immune to repeating this. But I have done it at least three times. I hope everything turns out well.
For simple water changes,, I have seen people use PVC pipe along with a couple plastic elbows to form a U shape which attaches to syphon hose with a clamp. They then hang the device which is usually longer on one end (the end that goes in the tank) depending on how much water they wish to remove ,, from the side of the tank.
When water level falls below the length of tube in the tank,, The syphon cannot pull anymore water. This would work for simple water changes but prolly wouldn't be helpful for vaccuming substrate.
