so i just picked up an oceanic systems 46g bow front off craigslist with wooden designer stand that has a glass door for sump access for $60, i know i almost felt bad doing it, but now the question is, how do i "shift" tanks without crashing and losing everything?
i think ive read every opinionated how to and argument there is on several forums and i want to skip all the bs and get some answers. i want to do this over a weekend so ill be there to monitor how my tank and stock is coping with the shift, i can take a friday afternoon off to start early and go all the way through monday so really ill have about 4 days of a time frame.
i want to use all the same live rock, live sand, water, pumps, powerheads, lighting, everything so it will be just like an expansion to theyre home with nothing different to keep the stress levels down. i might add about 20lbs of carribsea reef grade, either live or dry, and ill be getting the water pre-mixed @ 1.026, so with all that said and done, lets hear it guys im listening
