It's that time of year guys. Christmas Break. Although I've been planning this move for months now, I've come across a slight block in the road.
My 5 gallon tank has begun growing.. diatoms? on the gravel and plants. Now, I planned on moving the tank anyway which involves taking out all of the plants and decorations and crap. However, I planned on leaving enough water in my tank to keep the gravel wet for the bacteria to grow.
Well, now the gravel is brown. And I want to clean it. But I don't want to kill the live bacteria.
What on earth am I supposed to do?
