i would say the staining is complete
i tried to siphon it but there are lots of little particles floating around
probably needs a filter but trying a dirt bottom would be interesting as well

i added brown aquarium gravel
it should collect the dirt and make siphoning 10x as effective

actually this 20 gallon stained tank is without a filter im going to try both siphoning it once or twice a week and treating the water with ammonia reducer if i need to and also letting it cycle thoroughly
i could do water changes although that would dilute the tannins if i put fresh water in it
