I figured that the 55 isn't too full right now, but left to grow for a while those fish would overload the system. I personally wouldn't put more than just a pair of oscars in a 55, not full grown anyways. I'm pretty sure they're all going to grow pretty darn fast once they get in the big tank!

They shouldn't have to be in the 15 gallon for more than 2-3 hours... I'm going to work quickly, and I have 4 (count 'em, FOUR!) 300 watt heaters! Overkill I know, I keep getting them for free!

The 55 is sold already, along with my spare Magnum 330 and one of said 300 watt heaters. I have too many tanks already... (not really, but I don't want anyone to realize how addicted to fish I am).

I'll post when it's done - starting at about 7:30 pm CST. Thanks for the advice!

well if there wasn't an oscar in the 55, it would be fine. once they get settled into the bigger tank, they will grow like weeds, i am sure. If you feed the plecto sinking algea wafers, and shrimp wafers (if you can find them) he will grow 5inches in 4-5months, least that's what i have experienced.

how are you getting heaters for free ? still can't wait to see this come together, good luck!

The move is complete! The new tank is BIG...

All is well - pics to come, perhaps tomorrow.

The heaters - I've gotten heaters thrown in with a few tanks I've bought from friends, etc., so I've only bought one.

Now on to lighting... that'll be in another thread. I'm going to do a complete write up of my building project too, as soon as I have some time.

Pics soon, I promise! Probably before Monday.
