re: Moving Planted tank to new house
Can anyone give me some advice as in what is the best way to move

and so many plants you almost cant see the bottom.
My biggest concern is the fern's growing on the driftwood.
I recently moved a 48 gallon tank that was heavily planted. I was only

When I got to the new place, I replanted all the plants after having put in
1/2 of the water from the pails and then pouring in the rest of the
conserved water. I then used my python to top the tank up from the tap
(using conditioner of course!). I then put the fish in. I didn't lose a
