Hi Timmy

Do you have already transferred everything to the new system already ?

If not do you need to move everything within a day to the new system ?

Hi Alexander,

I have no rush to move everything, its just that i am gonna use the live rocks from the old tank. So i guess i am better off to just move everything when i am moving the first rock? There is also a few LPS and fishes in the tank: A couple of euphyllias, 1 BTA, 2 clowns, 1 puffer.

I would use new water aged with bacteria and food additions for a few months and then transfer. Its up to you but I have seen people lose there whole coral livestock doing a dry transfer. How many corals do you have?

Hello Timmy, what Bugger said is what I would personally do also if you like to move everything in a safe way but this also depend to the quantity and kind of animals you keep in your old system.
