Questions before I do my re-do

I have a 30 gallon, I don't like. I'm completely tearing down and doing everything over!! New substrate, whole new plan for hardscape and planting.

I'm going to pull the plants and put them in a bare ten gallon for safe keeping while I put in new substrate and build the hardscape and let silicone dry.


The bio media in my filter - can I pull that out of the filter and spread it out on the bottom of the holding tank? Will it somewhat survive this? I don't have another tank to run the filter on and putting a Fluval305 on a 10 gallon seems like a bad idea.

What is the best adhesive for glueing slate tile together? I have GE clear silicone I 'all purpose.' Google has many different answers for this.

How long does it take fissidens to attach to slate? While I've got the water out I thought I would give some moss a chance to attach with a sort of dry start.
