Yeah I already emptied my tank. =[ The plus isde is that I scrubbed it down with hot water and vinegar so I think the dye should be gone now. =]
If I had access to pure ammonia I'd go for it but there's nowhere to buy it from that I can reasonably get to(or at least not that I know of). =[
I'm thinking of trying to use the fish method again with a plastic bag but I have no idea how long that will take and I only have a week or so before I go home.
I plan to plant my tanks anyway so I figure why not just get it over with?
I actually still have one carbon filter pack left I believe. I may be wrong though. :P If I still have one left I'll use that one. =] When it runs out I'll probably just buy a bunch of activated carbon and refill it. XD
Oh! I just googled it! XD It's bio media! =] I still have a decent sized clean sponge left that I just put in my filter but every time I'm at the store I see bio-media that's similar to Seachem Matrix and I'm always tempted to buy it! =] This is great incentive for me to do so but I think I'll wait till after I have some Christmas Cash to spend. =]
Anyways I'll update when I have purchased the plants. =]
