I'd gravel vac. Thoroughly and repeatedly, until the water runs clear. I did this when I intentionally nuked a tank with a whole bottle of H2O2, and had no problems. Hope you're not using dirt!

Sorry, no plants to sell at the moment. Have already promised my clippings for about the next two months to some local planted tank enthusiasts.

hmm i have ada aqua soil, should i leave the tank alone for it to cycle?? or do i really have to clean the gravel.
