So I'm in need of advice. Right now I have a 29 gallon FOWLR
that's been established for over 2 years, I've been taking care of it for 6 months. The tank's most recent addition is a Long Tentacle Anemone I bought about 1.5 months ago.
I need to re-home/transfer my clown and LTA to a 20 gallon Tall by March because my friend will be taking his 29 gallon Tank back.
What's the best way to get the 20 gallon started up and ready to take my clown and LTA????
Since Anemone's need established tank, I don't want to start a fresh tank. So here is my idea: This weekend I'm going to do a 6g PWC
to the 29g tank. I wanted to put those 6g of old water and a large live rock from the 29g into the new 20g tank and then add 4g of newly mixed saltwater and run it like that for 2 or 3 weeks until my next PWC
and repeat the same process. ???WOULD THIS WORK????
Also I bought Bio-Activ Live Aragonite Black Beach Reef Sand - 20 lb. | ThatPetPlace.com
to use in the 20 gallon. Should I completely rinse the sand before putting in the tank since I don't want the 20g to cycle and I'll already be getting the beneficial bacteria from my transferred Live Rock and Water.
And last I need more rock for the 20gal. I bought a 3lb chunk of dried out Live Rock from my LFS
a few days ago ???What should I do with it??? I was thinking of just throwing it into the 29 gallon so it can become alive again and once that happens then move it into the 20gal, is this safe???? How much rock will I need if I'll be using a 200gph HOB
Thank you for taking the time to read all of this and any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!
