What is the best way to Transfer Sand?
I want to reuse my 8 month old sandbed from my 55g tank for the new tank.
(Should be ok since its not too old right?)
Is there a best way of doing the transfer over?
I imagine one would want to sift the sand for any large particles right?
Any other good practices?
The reason I want to reuse the sand is that all the silicates and phosphates are 0. It took 6 months for the tank to get there and all the hair algae to stop. Now its crystal clear, so I don't want to have to basically restart that with brand new sand.
