Patience is one thing I have learned is valuable in this hobby. I have been planning and researching this new setup since January 8O . I have a 20 gal
tank that will keep the maroon clown until his new home is ready. So this is your recommended process....
1) Remove critters from old tank and put in temporary tank
2) Setup new system with low flow, heater, sand and dead shrimp(ammonia source)..What about my new uncured base rock and should I still use the old substrate in a stocking trick?
3) After ammonia stage add existing LR
4) Watch nitrite fall to 0
5) Add critters to new home
Once again Steve THANKS for your help
