My tanks 5 gallon, what if i scooped up the fish with some water, put it in a container. Dumped the water cleaned the gravel filter, and put bottled water back in. Bad idea?

no way, the you're killing everything in the gravel, do 25% water changes, and vacuum only half of the gravel and refill with treated tap water

LOL ... why would you want that much work? Not only would it be more work for you, it would also cause a mini-cycle and could make your fish very sick.

Simple 10 - 30% weekly water changes with gravel vacs are much safer and less messy.
