Lol...A LOT of debate, research and several recomendations amd finally price (best option for least $) it is versatile (in/out of sump). $99 on sale thru petco and strongly recommended from numerous highly regarded professionals in local businesses and online contacts even still after I did A LOT of reseach. i had been back and forth on so many brands I was immobilized and is why it has taken me sooo long to get this up & running. Now....if my sump would just arrive i may actually git er done *sigh*

I know everyone seems to have very strong opinons in so many differnt directions; i can only hope i made the right choice after so much debate. I saw a quote one time saying "I only want to have to cry once". meaning make the best choice the first time and not have to spend more money later to have to upgrade or replace

So; a question in preparation of the big move... I have some sand worms in the live sand of my 12g. Do I pull them out and replant/bury or just scoop all sand and dump in new tank?
I have been scooping little bits of sand at a time but avoiding the area where the sand worms are because I am not sure what to do.
