So I want to redo my 55 gallon and covert it to a black sand substrate with live plants instead of gravel and fake plants. Now my plan is, I would set up my current stock in a spare 36 gallon bowfront once I start my "renovations" on the 55. I would just leave the 36 gallon bare bottom and fill it with the water and decorations from my current tank. I would also put the heater, filter, and just about everything else from the 55 gallon onto the 36 gallon hoping that it wold be enough BB to keep my stock alive. I also wanted to replace the filter media in my current filter on my 55 due to snails getting in there. (Snails are just one of the many reasons I want to redo the tank) If I'm missing anything please let me know so I can do it all correct without causing any deaths.
