Moving nano tank, do I need to do anything?
It's the end of the year, and it's time to move my nano to a friend's for a few days. I'm in the process of cleaning it at the moment, but do I need to do anything specific? I plan to drain the tank completely, and transport all vertebrates to the friend's and my place via bag, and then refill using half parts new location water and half parts old location water.
I'm concerned about the substrate though. I'm using FSS, and I'm scared that moving it will make a giant mess, as since I have a nano, there's no way for me to vacuum the substrate. I've only got some barely rooted carpet plants, and vallisneria growing rooted, so is it ok for me to just uproot and rinse out the fss then replant?
So many fish to keep, not enough aquaria.
