I was planning on waiting until my livebearer fry were older but the center support on my 37g tall tank broke. Petsmart is replacing the tank so today I am doing the deed! I am sure my fish are sick of living in this for the last 2 days but parameters in the bucket are perfect! My poor plants are living in a plastic bag covered 1g pitcher. DW with anubias is in the bucket with the fish. The gravel is in the big bowl and stock pot all also covered.
LOL I wanted to do sand on the dirt but I couldn't find any while I was in town today. I will eventually do it but this was a really quick job. I do have a really thick cap of gravel. I am hoping my plants keep doing as well as they have been their roots that grew in the gravel were growing like mad!
I didn't want to bring my cycled filter back in with the old tank and they didn't take the other one out of the box so now I have 2 filters! My fry are all hanging out in the hairgrass so you can't really see them. But the cardinals are just loving it! The specs still in the tank are a few of the fry that are actually not in the plants. I really can't wait to see how it all starts pick up with dirt and better lighting. I am dosing liquid carbon until I can afford a co2 system.
