Hello. Bit of a newbie. Had a tank leak, and to be honest panicked a bit as I was unprepared.
I've had a 54L tank for a year with 4 guppies and 6 cardinal tetras.
I had a big leak, so in an emergency I had to move the fish into a 20l Ikea tub, transferring the old filter over. 4 of the tetras died, but the remaining fish seem happy in this tub.
I've bought a new 64l tank, which is filled and running with the ornaments from the old tank.
Question: Whats the best way to move the fish to the new tank?
I am happy to fishless cycle the new tank, but that would mean the leaving the 6 fish in the small 20l tub while the new tank cycles - not sure if thats a good idea. Or could I safely move old filter to new tank & add the fish?
Info: - New tank set up for 1 week - New tank pH 6.8, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 0, Chlorine 0.8, temp 26 (Nitrite & Nitrate were high, but now 0, as I assume cycle has stopped) - New tank - no fish - Added Interpet Fast Start (2 doses over 4 days)
