changing scapes and need some help
sorry if this topic/thread has already been discussed. i plan on doing a complete scape change and need to vacuum out the substrate, etc. i was thinking about taking out all the fish and putting them in a bucket and saving 1/3 of the water. being that the subsrate and media is full of bacteria, do you think it would even be necessary to save the 1/3 of water? i don't want to use water that is contaminated with green dust algae seeing as though it is contagious. i've also noticed that everytime the substrate gets stirred up, i end up with this brown dust all over everything. i don't think i could vacuum out only half or 2/3 and get all of the substrate, that's why i was suggesting not saving any water.
if anyone can throw in their opinion or experience, i would greatly appreciate it!
