Last august my wife and I decided when our last Cichlid died we would try converting over to saltwater... well that turned out to be a success (thankfully), but now after 10 years the tank stand is showing some deterioration on the backside of the stand... So what do I do? I started to build my own stand, I have it all framed out and ready for sheeting and while I was putting the finishing touches on the framework it hit me... what was that you ask? Why not upgrade tank size too!!! So now Im looking at going from a 75 to a 90 gal
, I would go larger but with the new lights I just got recently and space "we" decided a 90 gal
would be large enough.
Now having never done this what would be the best way to go about this?
If you look at the my info button you will see whats in our 75 now.
One of my main questions is should I use the same sand? and Im going to have to add some base rock then put my liverock on top of that with new water, do you think this will cause a mini cycle and I know I could do this in one day or should this be done over time... WOW so many questions... Thanks all for any answers...
