I just finished setting up my new tank and i'm posting pictures ASAP. Hopefully in like 10 minutes...lol.
Anyway i have another post going about this DIY project for cheap, so i'm going to post some pics there and also where they can be viewed on my aquariums tab.
I don't have the fish in there yet, going to get my temp just perfect in the new setup.
I used water from my old tank approx 20 gallons; as well as putting some of the old media in my new filter and old substrate as well. I should be able to avoid a mini cycle. Going to take some readings a little later.
If you move filter media and substrate containing bacteria to a new tank, don't forget to have a source of ammonia in the new tank. A fish or two is best. Without continual ammonia, the bacteria will die off. They must be "fed."
