What's the best way to change the gravel in your tank? Total tank teardown? If so, I'll lose all my bacteria in the gravel. OR, should I change 1/4 of the tank at a time (maybe 1/4 of the tank per week) Would this work? This way the original bacteria can grow on the new sand. Will the P's be bothered by the changing gravel colors? BTW- wanna go from black gravel to sand (big color difference). Any suggestions?

if u want sand empty ur whole tank plus fish but 1st wash the sh*t outta ur sand just keep rinsing it off its a bitch but u have to then after than put sand in with decor and what not and and run filters it may take a few days but u have to let the sand settle u'll see dust and u dont want that sh*t to get in ur p's gills it can irritate and hurt them then when the tank has settled(no more dust water is clear) put p's in voila
