Thanks for that. So I guess the best cause of action would be to seed the filter media for the new tank for a couple of weeks in the old tank, then move all current LR
across with my current livestock (and all new sand, or should I put a couple of cups of my current sand in the new tank with the new sand)? Then slowly introduce the new LR
maybe 5kgs at a time (15kg total)?
Thanks for all the help.
