Absolutely amazing! The colours are fantastic Very Happy

How would you go about changing tanks? I'm assuming it's got to be way more complicated than just shifting a tropical set up over?

U can either wait for the tank to cycle which takes bout 2 weeks if u have got the space to have 2 tanks running at once or just sure the temp and sg r the same in both tanks and just transfer everything in one go
