I have a bloom of algae on my tank walls and the tubes running into the tank. I'm about to move into my new house so I have to empty the tanks anyways and I'm going to do a REALLY good clean on them (probably switch gravel as well as I've been wanting to do that for awhile now).
My biggest question is this:
- I have a HoB
filter and a sponge filter. Is there anything special I need to do in order to make sure I don't bring all the algae over into the tank again once it's setup? I don't want to dry out the filters as I don't want to lose my BB. Thoughts? Anybody else with any experience with this?
NOTE: I know the cause of the algae bloom so I will be avoiding that when I get the tank re-set back up.
