Future of Sandshifting Star
Here in a few days to a week, im doing a major tank over haul. I pretty much top to bottom. One think I seem to forget about was my Sand Shifting starfish. The whole tank is being drain, all the rock removed, all fish going into a QT tub. I was wanting to replace the sand, but the star comes into play...
One way or another the fish need removed due to ick out break, I plan to resetting the tank and corals back up and running it fallow for 2 months. I was planning of completely replacing the sand bed but now im unsure.
Can I removed the sand and have it in a temp tank and have the star in there while the new sand bed builds up some life?
Can I remove the sandbed, rescape the rock then add the old sandbed back into place and dump another 40 pounds of sand with it? Im at a loss with this star, hes been going great in the tank so far and id hate to lose it.
Dont be Wasteful is what I was always told, Got a dead fish? Get the Frying Pan Baby!
