Hi guys, I currently have light blue gravel mixed with natural coloured gravel in my aquarium. I am starting to really hate the light blue gravel and found the light blue paint fading on some causing it to turn white. So do you guys know how I can strip the light blue paint off the gravel? Would bleach work?

yah...you might wanna just replace it all...if your tank isn't that big...takes a while for the process if you bleach(i dunno if it works or not)...and the bleach might not wash out properly..and u might have to treat it with dechorinator and etc...plus too much chemicals isn't that great for livestock..let alone..dunno if the bleach will react badly with the coating.

Leaving out in full sunlight might help beach the colours out 'naturally'.... can't guarantee white though. Maybe try leaving some out for a few days (if we ever get a sunny day before May 2011!).
