View Full Version : Temporarily Move Tank

01-20-2007, 06:44 PM
As luck would have it I have to move my 55G tank temporarily while painters paint the office.

I'm trying to determine the best manner to handle the situation. The tank is in the middle of cycling with 5 mbuna in it.

I'm thinking that I might use a 10G aquarium as a holder for them during the painting. I could fill this 10G with the same substrate and water from the 55G.

The painters will only need one day to do the job.

Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

ya you could move em to the 10 for a day or 2 like you said
and so you don't have to start cycling all over again i would just keep the filter media wet while your tank is drained.

If it were me i would use a 35-50 gallon tupper ware cantainer. Fill it with the tank water, and you can even put all your filters and heaters on it.
