wes.crockett Posted December 16, 2022 Share Posted December 16, 2022 Hey all, Been a while, but my 10g has finally been pretty auto-pilot, so my frantic researching and questions have kind of come to a close... until today. Now that everything seems to be solid in my tank, I want to totally disrupt it! Does anyone know of a resource that discusses how to migrate tanks from a 10g to a 30g? I bought all the stuff for a 75 but decided it's too big and, ultimately, I only want to maintain a single tank. The 75 was going to be for Cichlids. Instead, I'd like to take what I have (6 Black Neon Tetras, 2 Otos, 1 Dwarf Honey Gourami) and put them in a bigger tank and then build out more of a community system over time. I, obviously, can't simply throw them in a new tank like that though... What would the proper method of transferring the fish, plants, and likely some substrate over to the new tank? My initial thought was set up the new tank (though IDK how since it needs to go where the old tank is) with new substrate and any net-new plants but incorporate some of the old substrate in to it... let it sit for a week or two and try to match water parameters... then transfer 5 gallons from the old tank over while I acclimate the fish a few at a time to the new tank until all are out of the old one. Is there a more rapid way to do this without totally putting my fish at risk?? In an ideal world, I'd straight out replace it in one go, but I'm sure that isn't advisable. Thanks all, Wes 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
