After almost buying a new 225 g tank I decided on a 180

Combining 125 with Oscar and SD with 75 with JD and pleco

This will reduce tanks down by 1
PickIng up Sunday

boston.craigslist.org/sob/for/6094796520.html

I don't know anything about the canister brand listed, but have two marineland and an ac HOB already

Now
I have to sell a 75
And a 125
May actually make money
If I don't sell...I'll fill and defeat reason!

I may move Malawi in 75 to the 125
While I won't be able to make more buffer...dear god....if my thinking is correct, almost double the water should reduce nitrates
And I'll still do the thirty five g buffer change weekly

Looks like a real nice pickup plus with tank running obviously no leaks. Good luck with the team going into one tank hopefully all OK.

Couldn't see the deal you got because the CL ad expired. Sounds nice though! Is the 180 the same footprint as the 125, just taller?

Well..
I get t He tank in am after two delays

I'm not sure what order to move in
I have a 56g that's been running with Oscar tank large sponge for over a week


My plan
Please let me know if you think order is wrong

Move new tank in dry
Put Oscar into empty sponge tank that's been running
Put silver dollars in with pleco and JD
Drain Oscar tank
Slide out and slide new tank in spot
Fill and set everything

Move silvers back in
Add pleco
Wait a few hours
Add jack and. Pray

Wait till dark and add Oscar

Empty JD tank
So I don't buy a wild Oscar and put in
Defeating reason I am combining two tanks

Shouldn't Oscar go in last?
