My guess is adding everything at once probably wouldn't be an issue unless all the new LR
doesn't have enough beneficial bacteria for the bioload.
Thanks. The main issue is that I can't move the old LR
into the new tank without the livestock, as the old tank would then be left with no LR
for filtration etc.
The bioload will be exactly the same for a few weeks until I start to add more - it'll just be in a bigger tank with obviously a much higher volume of water. With me still having the same amount of bacteria on the LR
/filter sponges as I have now, and the same livestock, I should be ok with my current livestock to just move everything straight across shouldn't I?
