  1. Hey everyone, I searched the first 3 pages of this forum, sorry if this has been asked before, but I'd appreciate some input please So I am in the mindset to upgrade my calico fantail to a 20gal because he deserves it...! Current he is only in a 10 gal. I am starting to have issues with water quality changing too quickly. I have a few questions on setup, how to properly transfer things, plants, etc? I am completely new to all of it, so please, any information as detailed as possible would greatly help! 1.) If I were to find a good deal on a secondhand one, say craigslist, what precautions should I look for, such as resealing it and disinfecting it? 2.) New is probably best...? There is a kit at my local PetCo, was wondering if this was considered an ok deal for all of the setup... will the filter be adequate, and if not, what would be better? 3.) What is the proper way to transfer him? Do I do a water change to get my tank specs all up to speed & clean, and then transfer all of his current tank water into the new one? Or do I set it up with entirely new water and do a fishless cycle? (I'd need linkage on how to do that too, lol) How would I transfer the established biosponge media "data" into the new tank? etc. 4.) Would plants, even 1 or two, be a good idea? I heard they help with nitrates. How easy or hard would it be, or effect his living conditions? (For the better I'd hope?) Currently he only has plastic plants. SO, which plants would you recommend? 5.) Anything else? What kind of airstone or aeration other thank my dinky airwant that I have now? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
