Hi: I know I shouldn't have done this, but I changed the all the water in my goldfish's tank because I probably left the gravel alone for a long time. Got a vacuum and tried vacuuming the gunk out of the gravel but it was too much stuff left in the remaining water so I washed everything out and now my "Big Gulp" is laying on the bottom of the tank. I'm wondering if it does have something to do with a needed bacteria there that is gone now. I remember hearing this from someone a while back and now I see that it may be true possibly? I think he has enough air and not too much food (won't eat too much anyway). Thank you for any help that you might enlighten me with.
