Gravel change question
 
I replaced the gravel in my 37gal. It had been running about 12weeks.
I put about 1/4 to 1/3 of the original gravel in nylon stocking boulders.
I know I should take a pic, It looks pretty funny.

So how long before I can pull the original gravel boulders?
I think I am at 10 days now..... 10? 14? Longer???

Thanks.

What are water parameters right now? There are still beneficial bacteria that colonoze the filters, glass and many others. You can pull out the original gravel anytime you want.

Cool, Thanks!
