    Fun project for the holiday weekend. Upgrading my 30 gallon to a 45. It's a direct switch utilizing the same stand. Also putting in new gravel. Looking for some suggestions to make the transition easier. Thanks.

    45g Planted Tank: 2 Koi Angelfish, 19 Rummy Nose Tetras, and 6 Green Cories

    No Message - korith   Just a 'Thank you' penguin to a water treatment guy :-D. Clean water and sanitiation is a CORNERSTONE of modern civilization that people take for granted and don't think twice about & I felt that way about it before I had fish lol. Thanks to my HS Hi - 850R   because I LOL'ed at your single neon 90 gal show fish - ddavis1979   For the help on CO2 and plants - Greentoads41   Great looking tank you have! - ~firefly~

    Some more details about the tank would help. For a journal, you should really start by posting a picture of the tank and listing all of the equipment (lighting, heater, fiter, etc.), type of substrate, livestock, plants, etc.

    For transitioning, get one or two 5g buckets to place the fish into. Empty the tank 3/4 of the way, filling up the buckets first. Place an airstone into the buckets to keep the water aerated. Catch the fish and place them in the buckets. Empty the rest of the tank. Remove the tank and put the new one on the stand. Set up the substrate the way you want it. Place the plants in the substrate if you have any. Fill up the tank (be sure to add conditioner). When the temperature in the tank is identical to the water in the buckets, move all of the fish into the tank.
