TomO Posted March 13, 2022 Share Posted March 13, 2022 I need to bounce a few questions off the group. I have a 75 gallon planted Peacock/ Mbuna/ barb tank. I’m going to trade the cichlids for a few red gold severums . And a few electric blue acara an a couple geophagus . I already had 2 red parrots and 3 adult angels. The barbs are going to the 55 where the parrots and angels have outgrown. I realize the plants in the 75 will eventually be fodder for the severums. I’ll be removing the rocks and adding wood. I’ll also give the gravel a good vacuuming. My question is, since there’s not a whole lot of beneficial bacteria in the water itself and catching 40 fish will likely stir up a bunch of inherent debris, can I just drain all 75 gallons? Then arrange wood in the new set up and add fresh water? Then transfer the angels and parrots to the newly set up 75? Or would the water need to be cycled first. I’ll be using the same sponge filters. This is my current set up Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
