I have a 10 year old 55gal and i have recently been upgrading it bit by bit to get ready to switch over to a 90-125gal
my first dilema:
I thought i could skip the cycling process by putting a new filstar filter(that will be used for the new tank) in the 55gal but using the old carbon and used sponges before switching tanks
there is no air in the filter and it sits about 3 inches below the surface (no waterfall effect) its been this way for 2 weeks. is this sufficient airation? (without an air pump) I am use to my biowheel so i'm a bit concerned
I had a 15 year old marble angel that just passed away. I was crushed and i did something i know better than doing... I went searching for another even though i will be switching tanks in a few months. I ended up coming home with a young koy angle and a young pearl angel. (both about 3.5 inches and very placid. Now they are in the new tank and my existing black angel (about 6inches) is attacking my new pearl. I don't know what to do! after only one day his tail is shredded. so now i have him in a breeding net box for the day.
should i put the two new babies in my spare 10 gal by themselves until they start to bulk up and i have my new tank running? or are they doomed? My tank has been established for years! grrrrr
i guess it would probably help if my tank was planted, i know they would love it but i have buenos aires tetras and thay consume anything that hits the water like little devils!
what a nightmare!
