Moving ADA substrate system?

Okay. Let's say I use PS/AS in my 37. Someday soon, I hope to replace that tank (due to scaping potential), possibly with a 75-P Cube Garden, or a 58-65 gallon. I was wondering, if it is possible to move an established ADA substrate system without causing problems. Would it just cause horrible coudly water/algae issues in the second tank, or would it be feasible?

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

I wouldn't see why it would be any worse than an initial filling, with the added bonus of your bacterial colony already being established.

Thumbs up

I would skip using the Powersand in your 37. Just use the Aquasoil. Save PowerSand for the bigger tank. I think that would make things a WHOLE lot easier for you during the transition.

yeah if you are planning on moving the substrate don't go with powersand. If you are not planning on moving the substrate I am all for powersand. In conjunction it works a whole lot better.

Excellent. Thank you for the response. I will be using just AS in the 37, but PS/AS in my new 60-P.
