Fun Fun Fun! Be sure to rinse your substrate first. You can do one of two things. Rinse it in the old tank water by adding it to the bucket then use a net or your hand to get it into the tank. Or, rinse it in tap water using a strainer or something, then add it to your bucket with the new water then treat it with the water conditioner mixing the rocks around.
