So far so good. Just waiting to get to the store for either conduit or hanger lol...been putting in overtime at work to support this hobby Once I have that gonna take your advice and trans current rock over to the tank and start acclimating my little creatures to the new water etc. plus put in the other power head.

Question, since the rocks from my 10g can't be exposed to air how to I get them in the 36? I was just gonna grab from on and dump in the other but there is gonna be a little air hitting them int he process.

A little air is not gonna kill enough to cause a spike. I wouldn't worry about it to much. I had no trouble when I upgraded from my 10 to 20 with exposing my rock to air for a few seconds.

Yeah a little air doesn't matter. When I moved from my 20 to 55; I exposed it and had very little ammonia.

Get that hanging solution soon, I want to see this take off buddy!

Thanks guys, a few seconds I can handle since the tanks are side by side right now. So I should go ahead and remove the floating shrimp I have in their right now then correct?

Mac, I wanna see it going too hahaha....I am planning on stopping tonight and see what I can get.
The sooner the better!

Some people take out out. Others let it fully decompose in there. I pulled mine out after about 2 weeks but left a smaller piece to decompose.

Transferred everything last night. Now need to do something a little different with the extra 10 pounds in there.

Took the light from the 10g and sat it on top of the stock hood for now. I should be able to hit the store tonight or tomorrow for hangers so I can put the LED's up and on.

So far things seem fine, of course my firefish and goby hid immediately but my clown and chromis were checking everything out lol. My sexy shrimp are so small I haven't seen them yet in this new tank haha.
