yeah you can use a powerhead or better yet get an eheim sludge extractor (what I use). With the eheim you don't even have to change the water it's like a vacuum with a micron bag that catches the detritus but lets the water back through. You can literally do this daily in less than a minute. When I had my BB tank I did this twice a day.
