do you have a gravel cleaner if so you can put pantyhose on it to stop them from being sucked up

Scoop and pour the water through a net, then return any caught babies. Repeat. It's tedious, but it works. Or, if you are patient, use a very narrow siphon and take your time.

I use an air stone with an airline attached. Guaranteed nothing passes through that! I position the airstone at the height until where I want to siphon off the water. Then I go and take a coffee....
