View Full Version : Change over to 55 Gallon

I have decided to change over to my 55 Gallon tank for my reef tank. Currently I am using a 20 Gallon. How do I go about doing this? Should I get my 55 Gallon drilled? Any advice on how to make this succesfull would be appreciated. Thank you.

IMO, if you can get it drilled, do it! You will be much happier with it, b/c you will not have to worry about a HOB overflow. After you do that, I would fill it up, and let it run with ONLY live rock and live sand and let it run it's course for about 2-3 weeks or more. After all parameters have stabilized, then slowly start adding things over the next couple of weeks to let the bacteria catch up and be stable. That's what I would do. (P.S. if you need help drilling, let me know!!)
