Creating a slope

How would you create a slope at the back of the tank without having to drain most of the water, is that possible?

A slope in the gravel? I just move gravel over with my hands in the tank without draining it, then either add more gravel because the front is to thin for your liking or just make everything even and clean looking.

Yes gravel lol the problem is... I want to add another 12 pound bag of gravel, and everything is already set up in my tank. That's what I meant how would I remove all that without draining all the water?

You could try adding it in ~1/2 pound scoops.

Fill up a red solo cup with new gravel, slowly submerge it, move to spot, pour new gravel.
