hi, i have a 30 gallon fowler with one clownfish some snails, and a few crabs. Tank has been up and running for 2yrs. I want to upgrade to a 50gallon tank, and i am wondering what has to be done as far as transferring everything to the larger tank. Such as do i have to cycle the larger tank? Or can I just transfer everything to the larger tank and add more water? Thanks

Freelagw welcome to TRT! I have moved several tanks before and just moved another one about a week ago. Move your rock, as much water as you can, and the fish over to the new tank. I would buy all new sand and make sure you don't keep the rock out of the water for too long. Get test kits for ammonia if you don't have any and keep some Prime, or Marine stress coat on hand. Now would be a good time to add any additional dry rock you want to add to the new tank.

Keep us posted! If you have any questions let us know as well.

Have fun and good luck!
