Hey guys. I am switching around fish and tanks to give room for fish. If you check my Aquariums (or tanks, I can't remember which), you may notice that many of the fish are in a different tank than what you actually know them to be in. I have many fish in temporary setups, but I finally got a 10g tank, and that changes everything.
Anyway...off topic...anyway, I was wondering if there was a way too quickly add gravel to my tank after it is rinsed. I will do it as slow as I need to, but I am anxious to get this project finished, and if there is a faster way, why not take it?
Here is my question. I rinsed my gravel out of a package. The gravel looks like the floor at a McDonalds PlayPlace just to give you a picture of the color. I washed it with tap water (containing Chlorine, etc.). I usually let it sit for about 3 days so that the Chlorine can dry out and evaporate. Today I am in a hurry because I have a new little buddy coming in, and it requires a humidity of less than 100% (PM me for details)! I am so excited!
Off topic again lol. Anyway, I was wondering if putting it in a bucket and dechlorinating the water, stirring the water, de-chlorinating it again, and maybe do that one more time would work (note: do not try this unless it is approved by the thread. This is NOT a proven method!
)? If anyone has any solutions or suggestions, please feel free to post. I will not ir-responsibely rush it if it is dangerous to the fish at all, but I would love to know if there was a safe, fast way to do it.
