Gonna have to rehome them all though as they're both incompatible with most of my existing fish and will destroy any live plants I attempt to add.
    Oh yea I hated that, transferring the fish I mean. Netting out a ton of tetras probably made me cuss more in that 30 minute period than I have my entire life. On top of that, a lot of folks don't realize how incredibly heavy even an empty tank is once you get up in 50 gallon+ range. You can mess around and hurt yourself trying to do it by yourself. Then having to rush to get everything set up and running because you've got fish in a bucket lol.

    We used a moving dolly and even then it was a massive hassle. And some of the corners got scrapped against the metal of the dolly that needed to be taped off so somebody doesn't cut themselves on the sharp glass (thankfully it was only right on the edge of the 1 inch thick glass and not actually structurally compromising).
