New tank

Post by polder » Wed May 23, 2018 4:30 pm

Hello everyone!
I need help cos i never do somethink like that before.

How to move puffer from 60 liters to 180 liters?
What we have: i cant keep 2 tanks at once. Need one to replace the other and how to do it without harming puffer?
Do I need to use old soil? Or a new one? Is it possible to add water from the old tank to the new one?
Just move all stuff from old 60l tank to new 180l and add some new sand/dry/live rocks/salwater?
:(

It's always best to move as much from the old tank over to the new one, since that's where all your nitrifying bacteria lives.
