    Its amazing how quickly I can find an answer to my questions by just going thru the threads and stickys. I was going to ask what is the measuring equivalent to 4ppm...but I found the answer, its how many "drops" to GET to 4ppm. So I just start low and test. and then add by drops to get to that 4ppm(or 3). See, just dont over-analyze, Mona!

    I'm with sheamurai. I just upgraded a 26 gal tank to a 40 breeder. I added a new filter, but also brought over the existing filter from the 26. Since the new tank was going in the same spot as the old one, I transferred the fish to an empty 20 gal I had and kept the filter and heater running on that while I tore down the 26 gal. and set up the 40. Then I transferred the fish and old filter over to the 40 along with the new filter. I'm running both filters on the tank for now, and maybe permanently. Switch was done a week ago and all fish are doing fine.

    Much easier and quicker than cycling new. Why bother if you don't have to. There's plenty of time to learn about cycling for your next tank

    I see your point, Sue. But this is my "next tank"....hmmm...anyway, so I would like to learn the cycling on this one. But I do like your idea of adding a second filter. Can't have too much filtration...I read that over and over again on this forum!

    Today, I pick up the new old tank! We'll pick it up after work.

    Once I get the cycle going I'll have to think about what I'm going to be adding to the community from the 10ga.

    I want to up the numbers of each of the species I currently have. But I'd like to add some that inhabit the upper part of the tank too. Suggestions?

    Getting a new tank is like Christmas!!

    Some species that swim in the upper region would be, Head and tail lights, Black neons, Harlequin rasbora, Bloodfins, Hatchet fish and any of the Pencilfish, just to name a few.

    I remember having 5-20g tanks when I was younger, when I got my first credit card the first purchase was a 65g, moved five times with us, finaly sold it to one of my employees in Tahoe. Glad to see you upgrade, you will never regret it!

    We broke down the tank, brought it home, worried about a leak (which Chuck thinks is just water collected under the bottom and slowly dripping out. There is 4" of water in it. I washed it down with a weak bleach solution. Rinsed it well! Now its on the stand and will be there until we determine that, no, that isn't a leak in the tank....Petco having its $1 per gallon sale until the 3rd.....

    I have the two new fish ensconced in the bedroom. They are freaked out, but the tank, the move. Have the lights off, trying to help them settle down. I "believe" one is a peppered catfish, and the other is a lemon tetra. Previous owner referred to it as a glass catfish, but, to me, it doesnt resemble one.

    catfish?

    So, I was a little disappointed that I couldn't dig in, so to speak. But that just teaches me patience, right? right? Its ok, gives me time to get things all ready to go.

    It wasnt til we were on the way home with the tank, that my hubby mentioned the gentleman we bought the tank from told him he had repaired leaks a couple of times on the tank. (They've had it for nearly 10 years) When we cleaned it up, Chuck was less than impressed with the "repair job" If we have to take it down to BEFORE the repairs to repair it, its do-able....I think. Did I mention Petco's $1 a gallon sale is on til the 3rd?....sigh....
