Yesterday was pond moving day-I upgraded from a 130g to a (approx)350g. Since I was working in a confined space,on my patio,I had to empty the old 1 and move it out before bringing the new 1 in. First, I put a 54g rubbermaid in my bathtub:

Pumped pond water into it

Added an Eheim Ecco filter,airstones,and a few plants-and the 10 fish from the pond

Where they stayed for about 8 hrs..........

Emptied the rest of the water into another bin holding the plants,etc...........And scraped some algae off(It had SUCH great algae goingcry3.gif)and put it in a container of pond water:

Wow Great Job Susan! :rockon

I am happy everything went smoothly!

You must be exhausted!

I LOVE the design of the new tub! It looks way better - and it seems to have so many more galllons without itself taking up much more space on your balcony! :bingo:
