I made the dumb mistake of using medication, that resulted in the death of a few of my fish. I decided to do a complete tear down to remove the meds. I removed all the gravel and rinsed it in water from another tank, to save the cycle, same with the filter. The water was completely drained, so I had to buy a very large rubber maid container to put the fish in for a few hours during the tear down.
Since, you are not stripping the tank from meds, you may get away with leaving the fish in. Hope you do not have all the nasty build up under yours, like I did.
Good luck with it! Gravel cleaning is already so much easier now that my ugf is gone!
