Question Transplanting HC during DSM ?

Hello everyone,

so i'm in the process of doing my DSM for HC, ive been debating about switching over from the current 20 gal its in and putting it into a 10 gal instead, is there any particular process for doing so? i dont really want to disturb the HC since its starting to take off, but i think it'll be better in my 10, please let me know! hopefully it wont be too much of a pain, thanks all!

I did this w/ my DHG belem carpet. I transplanted it from it's grow out tank into my mini-m.

What I did was cut the carpet into strips w/ a knife and just laid the strips on top of the substrate in the other tank, and put a teeny bit more aquasoil on top of the grass.

It's worked well so far and the grass is starting to grow again.

thanks! mine isnt quite at that stage yet but i think i should just give it a try, its so nice and pretty all rooted already i was thinking about using a small shovel and transferring it over, my 20 truvu is nice but i like having the 10 gal frameless, plus it might give my table a bit of a breather, haha.
