Decided to bring this thread back as I am going to be doing some moving in a few weeks.
I will be moving from the upstairs to my basement.
I would like to keep all my water. Transporting 90 gallons of water to my basement might be tough with 5 gal
containers. Could I use a new garden hose and pump the water out the window to my basement? I had read to not use garden hose before but I don't think I want to get 50ft or more of clear tubing.
Should I go ahead a dip all of my rock to remove any unwanteds? I don't want to cause any die off if I can avoid it but I do have a mantis in there some where.
When adding the sand back to the tank, should I expect an ammonia spike from a mini cycle? I am debating on removing part of my DSB
to seed a new fuge I plan on starting at the same time. Not sure if I want to add new sand or just revert to a SSB
Do most add there livestock back to the tank the same day, if possible? Seems like it might be better to have them in containers until the tank is clear and levels looks good. I want to re-paint my stand but I don't want to hurt my livestock.
