Sand to mineralized topsoil swap
I have a 60gal planted tank with just sand as the substrate. Within the next few weeks I am going to make mineralized top soil and would like to use it as a substrate. The tank is stocked right now with:
14 tiger barbs
8 neon tetras
1 opaline gourami
1 rubberlip pleco
1 clown pleco
2 bamboo shrimp
And alot of trumpet snails
Fluval 306 and aquatek 40-60
The main questions are:
What to do with fish while changing substrate.
How long to wait to put fish back in.
Can the Malaysian trumpet snails live in top soil?
The only other tanks I have access to are 2 ten gals. But I have a filter for them besides 1 small aquatek.
Ps I might be able to get a 20gal for a few days
