no sand bed help
no sand bed help
I am setting up my new system I want to use my old setup to house all of my live stock and corals for a couple of months well the new system cycles. well here I my question I want to use the sand from my old system so I need to remove it and put it in my new setup. well I will put and the live stock and the rock that has corals on them back in the old setup with now no sand.
What do I have to do to maintain that old setup with no sand. do I do anything different then normal? It will be like that for about 3 months I will move the fish over after about 2 months the corals after about 3 month.
it would be easier and better to just put new sand in ur new setup. u can use ur old setup as a refugium if u dont have one already.
well it is already done. the sand is in my new setup. It was not hard to do. I had a slight ammonia spike to .5 for 2 days. but it is cleared up now. that was in the tank that was esablished.
if you had a deep sand bed it could have cause problems. in some cases its easier to just buy new stuff.
Weres the pics then?
the pictures of the old setup with no sand?
your hard work payed off :D
i must say i am every envious. :welldone: to you
Thanks I still have a lot to do behind the sences. I am very excited to see it all come together.
