Martin Posted September 25, 2021 Share Posted September 25, 2021 Hey guys, I recently purchased a 20 gallon long and I have been trying to figure out the logistics in setting this tank up if I am actually upgrading from my 10 gallon. I plan to actually move everything over from my 10 gallon. I want to move all of the substrate and also the water. My method for moving the water was to do several serial water changes but to take the water I remove from there and put it in the new tank. Once the tank is about 25% full, I would do a full move of everything including the water. Theoretically, this should lead the new tank to be roughly 75% full of "old" tank water and 25% new water to cap it off... essentially at 25% PWC in the end. Would I need to cycle this tank? I figure it should be stable from the get-go, but then again, I'm an idiot so... Any considerations I am neglecting? Thanks in advance!
