I currently have a 54L planter tank with 3 male guppies and two corydoras, and a 20L rectangle tank with 5 females (a few may be pregnant).
In the future, I would like to put all of my guppies and corydoras into a 20L hexagonal tank that I have, get 1 fancy goldfish for the 54L, and then leave the 20L rectangle tank as a quarantine/ grow out tank.
My 54L tank is having a bit of a battle with ammonia, and it is cycling as we speak.
I’m wondering what is the best thing to do.
1) add all of the guppies into the 20L rectangle tank, try to start cycling filter media for the hexagonal tank, and completely tear down the 54L tank
2) wait for the 54L tank to sort it self out, while cycling some filter media for the hexagonal tank in the 20L rectangle tank at the same time
So sorry if that doesn’t make sense, I’m very confused and unsure of which is the best path to take
P.s please tell me if there is a third and better option!!
