I really want to rearrange everything in my tank tonight. I'd like to set it up differently. How do I go about this? I have 3 plecos, 5 otos, and one giant blue wood shrimp. Do I need to take them all out or what?

it shouldn't too bad. if you have a HOB filter you can run it on the bucket, instead of an aerator.

i mean the filter from the tank, not an extra one. I've done this several times, just be sure to check the temp and ph in the bucket and tank in case you need to re-acclimate

What kind of rearranging are you doing. If it isn't too much you can leave the fish in the tank.
