Solidus1833 Posted May 7, 2021 Share Posted May 7, 2021 So, I've been looking into upgrading from my 72g to a 100 or 125g for a few years. I essentially begin by trying to plan how I will process this endeavor and I just end up stop planning and forget about it. Does anyone have any good tips for something like this? My process begins with: Using 4 buckets to separate the Plecos, then Use my 32gal Trash-bin (I sometimes use to prep water) to hold the rest of my stock and what's left of the 72gal water. Connect my cannister to the trash-bin to keep it cycling while I work. Use another bucket or 3 scooping out my substrate and plants. Removing 72g from its stand, replacing with the upgrade. Filling in with old substrate and additional, then re-plant. Fill the new aquarium about 1/3rd with old tank water. Re-introduce the fish, and fill the rest of the aquarium with fresh tempered water and conditioner. I would definitely use some Seachem Stability during this process. Does this plan read like it could work? Or is it too much of a risk to the fish and possibly crash my beneficial bacteria? I've been planning to purchase a larger home within the next year or two, so even if I don't upgrade, I will need to transport my aquarium to a new location anyway. That will bring a whole new set of variables as-well including water quality. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
