I bought a new 230 gallon tank!!!!
It is drilled in both corners with return boxes. Each box is about 15 gallons.
First: Please share your thoughts. When I go to swap tanks (I have a 125 gallon now) I am going to take all my water, discharge it into trash bins (new ones), and put my live rock in there.
I was thinking of taking my fish and put them into a 35 gallon trash barrel filled with my tank water and a heater in there during the change over process.
Then swap the tank, and suck the water from where the live rock is to the tank, place the live rock, place the fish, finish filling the rest of the water, then mix water as needed and start the cycle.
Any thoughts on this process?
After the new tank is setup and fully stable, I was thinking of using one of my corner returns, and putting a few seahorses in there so as to not waste that space. Would that work? Of course my return will be screened off.
