View Full Version : Upgrading Question

So I recently purchased a 58 gallon oceanic tank with a 40 gallon sump. I currently have a 29 gallon reef that has been up and running for a little over a year. I have never moved a tank. I have purchased 50 lbs of base rock from Marcos. I am wondering if I should use some of my live rock from this tank or not? I have a little bit of algae in it but I think that with the larger system and with a fuge it will keep it under control. If you have any suggestions about moving from a smaller tank to a larger I would greatly appreciate any advice you have to offer.

If you want to shorten yout cycles and if it's possible stick your live rock in your sump. Make sure to turkey Baste your live rock before putting in the sump.
