Why not just drain the tank?

Or if you like your tank wet, you can pee in your tank

Eh, I'd remove the plants, drain tank to about 1/4 water left, then just dump in boiling water.

Or just add a fish that loves shrimp

haha, not blue bolts but blue velvets. I'm thinking of getting carbon rilis.

These are all good ideas, thanks guys

Most of us are just blasting light anyways, so we'll never get it right ;/ :/ >l/


I can grow YOUR PLANTS with shoplights

Agreed.

CO2 is heavier than atmospheric air. With the tank emptied to the substrate, drop in some dry ice and let it melt.

Of course this will mess up your cycle, but everything in that tank will die.
