55 to 75
So I just picked up a 75 gallon tank and stand off craiglist to replace my 55. The 75 will be going where the 55 currently sits.
I'm not really sure what to do with my livestock in between the tear down of the old tank and setup of the new one. I don't have any other established tanks to temporarily put them in.
I have an empty 20 gal tank sitting around. Could I just put everybody in there, and run the filter and heater during the switch? I currently have 3 pearl gouramis, 7 cherry barbs, 7 otos, 3 sterbai corys, 2 bolivian rams, 1 BN pleco, and some ghost shrimp and ramshorn.
I would appreciate any advice anyone can give me, or any links that may be useful. I'm hoping to avoid as many casualties as possible.
Also, should I expect any sort of mini cycle? I'll be transferring pretty much everything over to the 75 (substrate, filter, plants, etc.)
