I've decided to re-do Tofu's 5 gallon aquarium. Right now, he has river rocks, and I'm going to replace it with sand. Unfortunately, I had his tank near my window, with no wallpaper on the back to block the sunlight somewhat, and that side of his tank is caked in algae. So while I am removing his river rocks, I was going to just remove all the water, and scrub all the algae off everything, and replace the tank with a sand substrate and all new water.
Will this be okay for Tofu doing it that way? I know they're pretty hardy, but I don't want to hurt him.
I plan on buying a tank background tomorrow for the back of the tank, to help block the sunlight a little so the algae won't grow as bad. I'd move his tank, but the spot its in, is the best spot in my room, space wise.
