I'm replacing my sump today. At least I'm going to attempt it anyway. I'd like to have it done today but I'm worried about a few things that I wanna bounce off you guys.
First thing I have to do is drain my tank(90 gal
.) down and take out rocks and corals. Maybe even sand.. I have to move my stand away from the wall it's against in order to take out the old wet/dry and re-install a new refugium as the sumps will not fit through the front doors. Without disassembling the stand's middle support, and risking a collapse, I thought it safer to just drain the tank and move it, and replace everything back into the tank... What a nightmare!
I bought a 50 gal
. Storage bin to place Corals in and a 33 gal
. Trash can to put water and rocks
in. Will the fish and corals be ok in the bin overnight if I can't get everything back together in time? The tank has just finally started to level out and stabilize since initial setup and now I fear I'm gonna have a cycle, and everything has to get all back in order again. Also afraid of stressing fish and losing them..
Needless to say, I need some ideas and insight!
Please help! Thanks in advance!
