CandyEllerKern Posted October 23, 2022 Share Posted October 23, 2022 Halp! I have a very established (4 year old) 180g planted dirted tank capped with blasting sand. I have a Red Eyed Royal Pleco that likes to dig and has breached the cap one to many times and I am fed up as it absolutely destroys the tank and filter after (plus I think the dirt is past its prime) so I want to rip it all out and replace with Eco Complete. The problem is that I have Rabbit Snails, a billion blue dream shrimp, and a breeding pair of bristlenose plecos so babies of every size. How do you change the substrate without killing off long established shrimp and snail colonies. Even if I left the dirt and heavy capped the old dirt and sand with eco complete I feel like I would bury all my shrimp! Please help me! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
