Any help with the last question ?

Like i say my 900 arrives tomorro and i will be taking my time but eventually when i order plants will i be able to remove some from this setup or will it impact it too much regarding bacteria etc ?

Also i may want some of the hardscape to try in new setup firstly i need a tougher brush to scrub the green off but i have never had 2 tanks and wanted to use a lot from one to use in the other just not sure of the process ?

Eventually i will only have the 900 as dont want 2 tanks yet just want to dedicated time to one as with 2 kids both young hard to have time and lack of space.

Any help will be great as i have nk idea how to go about it

Thanks dean

You’ll be fine to use plants from your existing set up in your new one. I’d use only the excess though, rather than significantly reduce the plant mass in your existing, so any cuttings from stem plants, any runners from crypts etc that you snip off will be good.
I’d also seed the new filter with some media from your existing to help with establishing the tank. When I had more than one tank, I’d even use some of the water change water and pop it into to the new one and then top up with tap. It really helped with cycling.

Increase PO4 by 20% or so? Also tad of MGSO4 could help with yellowing buce's leaves.
Thanks mate i will be changing to EI in next scape so will no doubt need a lot of help in that department.

Thanks mate i will swap over a few buces etc and stems and like u say i will change a filter basket from blue sponge to seachem matrix in this tank then leave for a month and add into new setup then once shut this down i will add all my plants and fish over.

Yes it's correct it overhangs otherwise the doors would not be flash with the tank.

I hate adjusting the legs took ages to get somewere near level but by then they were all right in the air screwed right out, so screwed them all in exactly the same amount so were at same level but cabinet was closer to the ground, the rear leg on mine looks like off the floor but when put weight on it moves cabinet level so when water in should be ok, floors must be very uneven.

Aquascaper tank looks great Dean, I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun setting it up :cool:
