Umm.... this is falling to the bottom of the list. Shouldn't it be stickied so people can use it and closed since Old Fish Lady won't be answering questions about it?

When I do a 100 on my little 2.5 tanks I take out all decorations, the filter, and the fish and I swish CLEAN water around in the tank, only about half full, and I rub the gravel around in the tank. I do this several times or until the water is clean after you swish. When all visible algae is off of the rocks and out of the water, you've done a pretty good job. Then you can fill it up again, put the filter, the decorations, and the fish back in and you are good to go. As for a tank with live plants, I can't help you. Sorry.
