and idea!

I just had an idea.

Im not lazy or anything and keep up diligently with my water changes. But whilst I was looking at my plants a lightbulb popped up in my head. is it possible to have this set up...
1. have two gallon tanks.
2. have fast growing plants in said tanks
3. alternate and put fish in a different tank every week
4. plant will suck up excess ammonia/nitrate/nitrite when fishless

no more tipping water out and disturbing substrate! Let the ecosystems eatablish!

LOL just an idea. what do you guys think?

i was doing a self sustaining 1 gal but realized that it doent leave much room for swimmin with so many plants, why not halve it it to two tanks and move the fish around >.>

I think that the constant change of tank would cause stress.

My fish gets all excited about new environments :) The only time my fish stress for different things. One is uber unhappy if his container doesnt have a transparent wall (loses color in a matter of seconds!), the other is more chill and makes me think he can withstand anything. They adapt to wnvironments fairly well if the conditions are good i think. for one I have a decanter, the ones with holes in the middle, as his holding "cup", he was so confused about that hole at first but now navigates the glass decanter like a boss when its wc time :).

They've all been through daily water changes in Qt tanks at one stage or another an knows that water changes are no big deal.

but i mean really its not that much different than, take fish out. take plants out. Dump water. Put fish in... and in a 1 gal that would happen twice a week instead of one.
