So I want to change my gravel, perhaps over the summer. I have white gravel, with those gems (assorted colors of clear/orange) around the tank. White is very pretty, although I would like black. I'm not worried about cycling or whatnot, I'll be keeping the gravel in cups for a while just for the sake of paranoia.
What I am TERRIFIED about it ... What to do with the white gravel?
Throw it out?
What a horrid waste. LOL. It's really to the point where "I'll leave the gravel, and make the next tank black." I... absolutely hate the idea of throwing away gravel, and I even have EXTRA white gravel.
And I'm even more terrified about the parents... "We bought you this gravel with our money! You're wasting our money! What's wrong with you! No more fish!!" Etc, etc, etc, etc. Haha...
What are your ideas/takes on this?
Keep the gravel? Do something with the gravel? If so, how do I tell the parents? Etc. :)
