How do I remove plants from a c02 planted tank?

Recommended Posts

That depends on how long you will take to rescape it? I've helped some folks here rescape their tank, took one day. We kept the plants, fish, and filter media in a few buckets with old tank water that day, then reassembled the filter and the tank never missed a beat. If you're going to dry out the media and take a week, or two you'll be faced with cycling again and with it assorted algae phases.

Unless you have high light, and CO2 demand plants, you won't see any issues moving them to a non-CO2 tank with the exception of crypts that don't like to be moved period; they might experience a melt but generally will recover.
