No, we are going with an all new substrate, Going with sand this time. The current one is a gravel bottom, but with all the loaches, we wanted a sand bottom. We will likely tear the 55 down, and clean it up, then set it back up and transfer the semi-aggressive over to it. Once we get that down, I think we will be turning the 29 into a brackish tank.
I do appreciate all the help and advice,
