I planned two months in advance to setup my 70 gallon tank. I had my ac 500 foam sitting underneath the outflow of my ac200 in 30 gal. I also had double sponges in both my ac200's. I switched all my decos to the new tank. I then put all the 1/2 my ac200's foam underneath the ac500 foam in the filter. Then I scarily added all my yoyo's,striatas,angelicus and clown plec. 14 fish in total. I have been monitoring amy ammonia and nitrites I had tiny ammonia spike after 5 days and a small nitrite spike a few days after that and then both were/are "0". I'm very happy now i can
start adding groups of preacox rainbows:))Then I have 2 clowns and 4 histrionicas after that.
