how often do you chenge the filter in it? I change mine every 3 weeks and by then they are hardcore green and mt surface is scummy

should I just stuff it with filter floss?

I put some filter sponge & filter floss in the compartment for it. when I clean the tank, I'll switch them around in a container of clean treated tap water.

I'm glad to hear it! what was the biggest tank you had to move. I'm going to be moving out of my house in a year or so and I have a 55 gallon tall tank and am wondering how hard would it be to move?

the biggest tank was a 29 gallon tall. the tanks weren't hard to move, just packed them good and used things like heavy comforters for padding on the glass ones. the hard part was coming up with a crazy last second plan to move the fish that far by car.

well, they use fedex ground for DFS orders that aren't overnight.. and fedex ships live fish, you just have to get a license or whatever from them to do so.

that's lame. did you keep your substrate for your tanks in them so you diddnt have to cycle again or did you start all tnaks over from scratch

I was able to put the substrata and filter media from the tanks into rubbermaid containers with some tank water and enough bacteria survived the trip to have all the tanks except 2 fully cycled not long after they were setup here and 1 of those 2 had been stored for over a month in the garage before the move so that was expected. Unfortunately the 29 gallon that I was going to order fish from Dino for lost it's cycle and had to be started over.
