Tips for moving 10g and 37g tanks?
I will be moving into my first home soon... luckily just up the road a bit. I need to move 3 x 10g tanks and eventually one 37g (currently on a 2nd floor... yay). I am most concerned about the weight of the substrate/hard scape, especially in the 37g, which holds 3-5 inches of eco-complete and a few rocks (I could probably remove and replace the rocks fairly easily). I'd rather not have to completely undo the scaping and start over, but will if everyone thinks it is best. Here is my general plan, but let me know if you have any great tips. Thanks!
Tanks with fish:
1. Set up a spare 10g tank at the new residence.
2. Move livestock to spare tank.
3. Drain water as much as possible and reserve.
4. Slide tank onto sturdy board.
5. Move carefully.
6. Replace water.
7. Replace livestock.
Tank with CRS (I will try to move tank without removing CRS):
1. Drain and reserve water, leaving enough at the bottom for the shrimps (there are approx. 100 or so).
2. Slide tank onto sturdy board.
3. Move carefully.
4. Replace water.
37 gallon community; 10 gallon S-SS CRS; 2x10 gallon guppies; Specialties: Japan blue guppies (wild type), Ginga sulfureus guppies, Blond platinum LS guppies with purple mutation.
Non-aquatics: Off-track thoroughbred racehorse; 2 Maine Coon-type cats; 2 fluffy house rabbits; 60 orchid plants.
