What supplier(s) supply Marineland?

In addition, if I am not suppose to do a 100% water change, then how would I clean the gravel?

Um well I get all marineland things at my lfs, Big Als. But I believe petsmart carries them sometimes? Because I've gotten a marineland filter from there.

What do you use to do water changes? Don't you have a siphon tube thinger that you suck the water out with? You vacuum the gravel with that thing.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

You don't suck the gravel out, you use the gravel vacuum to suck waste up out of the gravel.

Well, I didn't see my dad vacuum the gravel, so the tube thingy woun't be able to suck the gravel the tank, right? Or is there a distance between the gravel and the vacuum that my dad should follow?

No the rocks are too heavy to be sucked up. You just shove the vacuum right in there and you see all the waste go up and the rocks go back down, if any get caught just gently tap it against the side of the tank or give it a shake and they will fall back out.
