Dear Forum

i have 2 aquariums one big and other small , the big one used to have catfish shark and other catfish i couldn't take care of them alot for being busy at collage so i had to sell them , and today i cleaned up the whole aquarium so now its clean like new , starting to buy some sand and woods for aquarium profile
so the small aquarium 1 BGK , 6 rainbow shark , 2 clone louch , 2 pleco
1-i want to know what way to translate all my fish to the new aquarium , ( afraid to lose my BGK )
2-big aquarim full up with filtered water + anti chlorine is enough ? and how many hours keep it filtration
3-what i can add mates to my fish or what i can add fish that can live with my old fish in peace and friendly

What are the measurements of your tanks? What is the hardness and ph of your water? If you can provide us with these we can help you chose your fish.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Without knowing the size of your tanks it is difficult for us to suggest fish. But the fish you now have need lots of space and the BGK is not a community fish in the common sense of the term.

As for cycling, this may help you:

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

If those numbers are centimeters, then the tank is a 5-foot. I would make this the aquascape for the knifefish. Here is some info on this fish and suitable tankmates:

That would be really nice but it takes alot time for me , i am good at planting plants in the tank even in my county the tools or item requires is not avaible for it
so i would stay with sand woods plastic plant is much easier
