Ok so yesterday i asked the question of what is the best way to put my new tub of sera floredepot fertilizer/gravel in my tank. Well it looks like im going to have to empty my tank of water to put it in! So i have 2 odessa barbs, 2 red glass ruby barbs, 3 corys, and a gourami. My question is what is the best thing to put my fish in? Do i put them all in one container? Or what?

A clean bucket works well.You can put a filter on the side too.
So does another tank.

Well, they are in one container now, aren't they?

Put them in a pail of tank water, drain your tank, add your gravel and fill tank again making sure you add that dechlorinator.

Lay a plastic bag over the substrate and fill the tank slowly and it should not kick up much dust that way.

Should i add all new water or should i siphon the tank water back into the tank?

New temp matched dechlorinated water is always best.
