For really stubborn stains on plastic plants I used to bleach them. 1 part bleach for 10 parts water. Just rinse really well before putting back in the tank.....
i try to do gravel cleans once a week with my water change. my tank hasnt fully cycled yet. i wish i was o here before i got it. coz i would have done a fishless cycle. pet shops dont give the correct advice and because of this i lost two white cloud minnows
