I am needing some advice/feedback from Aquasoil users, if there are any out there (I'm sure some of you use it!).
I have a 10g planted with Aquasoil and I will be upgrading the tank to a 20 long soon. I know that when you disturb AS it leaches some ammonia. I want to know if there is a way, with a cycled filter and water changes, that I will be able to move the AS from the 10g to the 20g and put the fish and shrimp in shortly after. I really don't have a spare tank that the fish and shrimp can stay in, I need to move the fish back in.
The filter I will be using on the 20g is a AC50 that has been cycled on a 55g for a couple months. I have Purigen, which removes the cloudiness, but not ammonia. I can do tons of water changes, but I don't want to kill my fish and shrimp.
Has anyone ever moved Aquasoil to another tank? How did that go? I'm hoping someone has or can atleast offer me some advice.
For a 20 long, how much Aquasoil would you use? I have 6L in the 10g and I'm hoping that buying another 3L bag will be enough. The majority of the substrate will be planted with HC or Glosso, so it doesn't have to be thick.
Any advice/suggestions are welcomed! TIA!
