Moving ALL of my fish today

Post  Doxiemom on Sat May 25, 2013 6:20 am

Well....this is the day!! All my fish (and Bills!)are being transferred to our temporary house. I was so blessed when we moved two years ago....not a single loss. Wish me luck!! I am a little nervous because I'm going back to county water. I've been spoiled with well water and haven't needed to use any additives!!

Dox, If I had 1/2 the energy you have, I'd consider myself blessed! Progress report? Bill

Hi everyone! It's been another good transfer!! Did not lose a single fish...knock on driftwood!! All fish are in a 55 right now. I will be setting up another tank today. Will be looking out for spikes but should be fine. I transferred the filters untouched with some water in them. Also left the gravel in the tanks and left just enough water for the bacteria to live. Added some bottled enzymes (not a huge fan but better be safe).
Oh, and about two months ago...I went to dollar store and got a bag of those plastic round kitchen scrubby things and put them in the hob's. They are better at holding the bacteria than bio balls!!!!
