Help - Moving a 15 to a 150

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

First, if there are some really informative existing threads on this, a link alone would do me.

 

I returned to the hobby in May with an IM 15, and I've now bit the bullet and have a CADE 1500 S2 en route to me via Algae Barn. 

 

I'm good on the gear and husbandry front, but I'm really hemming and hawing about transferring the inhabitants and rock and stuff from the Nano, which I've heavily invested in seeding with a ton of biodiversity, to the CADE. When, how, etc. I really don't want to do a raw shrimp or unassigned cycle, but I'm not sure just transferring some rock with live sand etc and the inhabitants is gonna do the trick for a ten times larger ecosystem.

 

Basically, I'm fishing for advice and perspective. The hobby has changed a lot in the 17 years I've been gone from it.

 

Thanks!

Mike

I fully documented my tank transfer in my lagoon thread. The first few pages is very descriptive of what i did.

 

 

The only thing i would do differently from what i did for going to such a large tank, is precycle new rocks in a bucket, once those are done cycling, i'd transfer over everything at once to the large tank and then no cycle needed at all.
