Karen B. Posted March 21, 2022 Share Posted March 21, 2022 Greetings I currently have a 20 gallons high (24 x 12 x 16) and I feel it’s a bit overcrowded or, at least, that my honey gourami don’t have enough space to be away from one another. (1m honey gourami, 2f, 15 Chili Rasbora, 6-8 false julii corydoras). The population won’t change. So I decided to upgrade to a 30 gallons (36 x 12 x 16). I know it’s not much of an upgrade but living in a 1rst floor apartment, so much water actually freaks me out. So I will keep everything- plants, substrate (I have flourish black sand but it turned a bit grey over the year so I will mix in some stoney black river sand from Estes), sponge filter, HOB filter (Aqueon 30 gallons quietflow), rocks… Only thing I will change is my piece of wood. 2 questions : 1 - will I lose my cycle? 2 - Should I upgrade my HOB to a 50 gallons one? If you have any other advices or suggestions, I am all ears. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
