Yeah I think it would he okay to remove it. Yes another week won't hurt anything and just keep the bacteria going in the filter and ready for when you do move it.

Sounds good to MEEEE! Thanks for the back-up - always good to double-check. I've never dealt with a tank THIS big before (even though it's still considered to be 'small') Just want to make sure the rules aren't different. I can wait a week. I'm REALLY good at being patient, lol!

You are probably right but I also would not take a chance. How would we feel if someone beamed us to another planet to see if we could breath well enough? :}

I'm with you! Provided I could handle the atmosphere, and wasn't in danger of being obliterated by some random beast or . . . whatever - AND that I could come back without any trouble. . .being beamed to another planet sounds like FUN.

Point taken, though. I try to be very cautious where my fishies are concerned. Patience is always the way to go with fish :)

Thank you, Jayy!!! You're so sweet - and silly! You can, and your tank is growing in beautifully! Speaking of which, have I missed the updates, or have you not posted in a while? How are those pretty little Diamonds of yours doing? I love those fish. . . *jealous*

Sure hope so! I'd love everything to grow like mad so i can put the clippings into the other tanks! But i've noticed my sword tails like to nibble on the plants xD

Do you feed your Swordtails veggies? I give my fish fresh fruits and veggies, and they tend to leave the plants alone - My Live-bearers (Mollies and guppies) never ate the leaves, though they will nibble any (seemingly invisible) algae that might be growing on them, and *sigh* they still can't pass up on those tasty, tender roots from the floating plants (which is one of the reasons I suspect that I've had poor luck with floaters until now). They've never caused the leaves any damage, though - might be worth a try?
