Yes the fish I have in my 55 gallon will move to the bigger tank and then I was gonna get a 75 gallon and stock it with a different community of fish.Will you stock it with the same fish?
I don‘t think 5 gallons is enough. That’s under 10%. I’d take at least 25%, & likely more, depending on the API test resultsSo if I was to take out 5 gallons of water weekly would that lower the nitrate in my tank?
Never been possible for me to get to zero, not even close. More like 15 ppm & that’s with pothos and Lucky Bamboo roots submerged in the water supposedly uptaking nitratesI've never kept african cichlids but removing water from your tank weekly will remove nitrates, but you don't actually want 0 nitrates. You should aim for between 5-20 ppm
