The odissey of moving fish and filters to a bigger tank

Hi As I mentioned in another post I was in the process of changing aquáriums. Basically traded a 4x2x2,5´ (120x60x75cms) for a 6´8"x2x2´ (200x60x60cms).

Or, if you wnat to go "massive", either a ...

For around 20 years I only kept reef tanks but the FW bug got me again so nowadays I am with FW. I currently keep two tanks: one with a blue bas...
