Cleaning shallow tank? Siphon won’t work

WagglePets

So I’m TRYING to breed African dwarf frogs in my 10 gal and every website says lower the water to simulate dry season which now it’s only 50% filled. How do I vacuum the substrate? My siphon won’t work unless it’s completly underwater and it’s not with that tank not even close. I feed blood worms so I really need to clean the gravel.

sorry mods if this is in the wrong section

Can you lower the siphon sideways to get it all the way under the water? Once the siphon starts you can make it upright again as long as the opening doesnt go out of the water.
