I am picking up the FOWLR
55 gallon fully established system tomorrow. I'm looking for any advice for a moving a tank that I have not already thought of.
Once the system is broken down, it'll be about 1 hour of drive time back to my house.
I have a cooler to transport the fish in. It will have a heater and an aerator running in it.
I have several 5 gallon buckets that I will take as much of the existing water was possible. I will store the LR
in the buckets covered with existing tank water.
It has a HOB
3 stage filter that I will keep damp to help the existing bacteria survive.
I will siphon water out for the cooler to store the fish in first so it's not dirty water.
Then I'll put the live rock into buckets and cover with water.
Then I'll capture the fish and put them in the clean cooler water.
I'll scoop the sand and store it in some buckets.
I will have 20 gallons of premixed saltwater for the tank once it's set back up to mix in with the water I keep.
Once the tank is set back up and the parameters are correct I will add the fish.
Anyone got any advice I haven't thought of?
