So. My 5g tank finished cycling yesterday. I was really excited until this morning when I discovered that the tank had started leaking. I didn't have time to do it today but I'm going to go get a new tank tomorrow. I removed about half the water (enough to make it light enough to carry) and stuck it in the laundry room basin so it wouldn't leak all over everything.
Hopefully there will still be some water in there when I get off work tomorrow. I guess my question is, what will happen with my cycle when I get the new tank? Will I have to start it over? What if I decide to upgrade to a 10g?
