Hi I am going to transfer my fish and LR from my 75gal tank to a 38 gal tank so I can redo the 75gal (unwanted idems need to be removed and would be too stressfull on the fish). When I am done I plan on having both of them continue to run saltwater with the 38gal tank having fish/LR and some easy cheap corals in it but nothing extreeme (the 38gal with a sand bed and the 75gal with a crushed coral bed). What I have done so far to the 38 gal is put 60-75lbs of Southdown play sand in (spending 3-4 hrs rinsing all of it). I have the saltinity up to 1.022 and the tank heated to 82 deg. I used 15 gal of water from the 75 gal tank and the other 23 gal was freshly mixed. The 38 gal tank has been set up since Tues and now the sand has finally settled. What do I need to do from here to help the tank cycle so I can safely move the fish to there temporary home? I can NOT move all of the LR from the 75 gal tank because my manderan fish needs that to feed off of. All sugestions would be helpfull. I do not really know about starting a tank off since the LFS totally screwed me on telling me how to set up the tank and when to add stuff (that was 2 yrs ago). A better LFS helped me nuke the tank and stablize it and make it what it has become today (the 75gal tank has been running perfectly for 6mnths now). The only benifit of the whole mess was that my live rocks were mature by the time the whole tank mess got straightened out.
