I would not take the brown stuff but instead a handful or so of the actual gravel if you do not want that color gravel in the tank put it in a clean knee high stocking and just lay or hang it in the tank, you could also use part of the filter media from the other tank if it has been set up and running for over 6 months.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.
