Chris here.... 😋 Hi Kokonuts, I need some advice please.... 🙃. In the near future, our home is to be tented for 3 days for treatment of termites... It will be some type a gas treatment... Dang it.... I need to get the boys out of the house. I know that I’ll have to put them in more than one tub, and some how protect all their media... My boys are pretty good size. Their bodies average 4 inches, nose to peduncle (not including tail fins). Their tank is a 75 gallon with 2 AC 110’s, 1-4” sponge filter and 1-5” sponge filter. So here are my questions: 1. What size tubs would best for at least 4 day stay? Assuming that each tub will have to support 1 AC 110, 1 sponge filter and two of the boys. 2. I need to know how to protect the tank from contamination... I will drain and remove all the decore... But the tank itself... Do I need to get it out as well? If so, would it be fine outside on the patio? Should I wrap or cover it with something to protect it from the elements? Or will it be too close to the house while it’s being treated? 3. When resetting up the tank.... Do I just do a good cleaning with vinagar water of do I need to do a bleach rinse before I reset up everything? 4. Should I delay bringing them home after the House is treated? (Letting the house air out for a few days???) Your advise is greatly appreciated... Hugs, Chris. 😍☺️ Pic is not the best, but you get the idea.... 😋
