I went to my LFS yesterday and purchased a AGA 75Ga with built in overflows. This is my dilema. I currently have a 75 that is running a wetdry and skimmer. I dont know how im going to cycle the new tank without a filter? I was thinking of buying a small 20 ga fish tank and putting my live stock in there until my tank cycles. The thing is that i have all these fish and i dont know if they are going to get along? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
If it doesn't work, use a Hammer.
You could do that, remember, most of the beneficial bacteria will reside in the rock, filter media, substrate and other things it can cling to. Also, make sure your parameters are the same in both tanks: heat, pH, otherwise you will have to acclimate them.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....
