Well guys the weekend is here!
I have been making RO
water and filling as many jugs as I have. Base rock from reefcleaners and a good friend of mine Frank are cycling along with some of my display tank LR
and sand. So far no visable signs of ammonia or nitrites!
Tomorrow Sat. the 19th will be spent on removing all tank inhabitants.
I have a borrrowed 55g that will house the fish and some of my larger pieces of coral. One of my trash bins will house the LR
that has no corals attached to it. I plan on removing some of the corals that were attached to rocks or pvc
so that I can later place and glue them to their next home.
All bins will have power heads for water movement. The 55g tank will have the 125g over flow box from the old tank and will continue to run while we setup the new 180g tank which we will go pick up on Sun. the 20th.
I will not start the ca
reactor until the new tank is up and running for at least 24 hrs. Do you guys feel any different about that?
I decided that I will go with a thin layer of sand. In my current tank I have never had any of the typical problems because I have plenty of sand sifters.
I have been worried that I will lose a coral but I think I am ready and have plenty of help.
I will post some pics of the event and will keep everyone updated.
Don't worry guys my use of pvc
this time will be extremely small and will be placed in a way that you can not see it.
Many thanks to Frank and Luis!
Wish me luck!
