Tank swaps

I have a 20 gallon tank with three Dojo Loaches that will eventually outgrow it. I love these guys, so flipping lazy. I know eventually I'll need a bigger tank, but it's going to need to be in the same spot as the current tank. Logistically, how is this done? When I originally set up my tank I took about a month before I added fish. Click image for larger version

You won't have to cycle your new tank if you move everything over at the same time.

I would say remove critters, decor, plants, and equipment. Drain most of the water and transfer substrate. Place decor, plants, and equipment. Fill. Add critters.

Sweet. I'll just wait till they get big. With any luck they'll grow slow.
