3 gallon tank cleaning

Hello. Set-up: I have two Molly fish in a three gallon tank. There is proper filtration, two houses for hiding, conditioned water and gravel on the bottom. My mollies are healthy and growing (I will need a larger tank soon).

I clean the entire set-up about every ten days keeping 1/2 the water. But I replace the rocks and this means I have to take the fish out first. Althought they are very healthy..... am I stress them by taking them out? If so, how do I remove the rocks on the bottom and replace them without also stress out Shark and Bate (kids named them )

Thanks!

Instead of taking out the gravel every water change, you should look into getting a small gravel vacuum. This will allow you to suck up all of the waste in and under the gravel. That way there's no removing of inhabitants resulting in no stress.

You'll really appreciate the vac when you upgrade to a larger tank! I love seeing kids getting involved in aquatics, they're the future of the hobby!
