This isn't a betta tank.. but it's a planted tank and I need some advice!
I currently have a 29G planted tank.. and am moving on 7/9... I am moving literally down the street to a larger apartment, and the tank move will take one day.
I plan on taking out half the water, and keeping the fish and plants in a tupperware for transport.
I plan on keeping the gravel in a dry wall bucket with some water as well. I'm going to take everything out the the 29 gallon because I am upgrading to a 40G breeder. (what better to upgrade than moving?)
All I'm going to need is more gravel, a bigger light, hood and stand. Thankfully my filter is good for up to 70 gallons!
I have an amazon sword and plenty of wood and anubias, as well as anacharis floating... All these plants should be fine being uprooted...
I also have TONS of crypts... it started as one plant and over the course of 3 years has taken over... I really like them.. but anytime I've taken some out to put in a different tank the leaves melt. From what I've read, crypt melt is a common issue.
How can I try to avoid this? It's going to be difficult to not disrupt the root system when I have to dig out all the gravel and then re-plant in a larger tank.. any advice would be very much appreciated.
Here's a picture to give you an idea of what I'll be working with.
