Im taking my tank down to rebuild it with in the next week. I got a diamond hole saw for a 1 1/2inch bulk head, mag 9.5 pump, all plumbing, build a new 20g long fuge and i plan on replacing the substraight too.
I have all the needed parts, but im wondering what my best plan of action should be. My thought process was
#1 drain tank and transer corals/fish into holding tank (recycle bin)
#2 take out the rock and substraight
#3 drill tank
#4 Attach bulkhead and do all the plumbing
#5 set up the refuge with drain and return tubes
#5 place new sand/substraight in DT
#6 do the aquascape
#7 transer fish back into tank
since im transfering all my water along with the fish and coral into a 40g bin, could i just place them into the tank once im done with all my stetp?? any suggestions?
