I have a 2 foot tank with a number of platies in it and I wanted to move them into a bigger tank. I have a large piece of drift wood in the old tank and I plan to transfer that across to help with beneficial bacteria colonisation. I had the idea to run a new internal filter in the old tank for a few weeks then move it over to the new tank. Does that sound like a good idea? I have to buy a new internal filter firstly, Aquatopia Internal Filter.
