How can i change substrate

SanDiegoRedneck

I have 20gal tank I purchased off CL. It now houses my barbs.

I hate this substrate. It seems to be falling apart. When I gravel vac it's like black. Or did the person before really never vac? But I don't believe because water parameter was good.

Also in pic looks like falling apart.

I love eco complete. can I switch to eco complete without moving fish?

Like slowly go bare, the build up over time?

Also ignore biorings on sponge filter I'm seeding as I took HOB off

That is a perfect substrate for plants, why do you want to change it?

When I touch it it clouds entire water with brown dust. I don't seem to be able to fully clean. When i gravel vac it's black not even close to seethrough
