Really bold move there... I understand why you did it so I hope it works. I advise not to buy more fish, as the biological load right now is "huge" on that non-stablished ecosystem. Cichlids are hard fish though... really hope you suffer no more losses. Please, post the tank pic in the thread of your tank size!!! Nice tank

don't worry, no more fish are going in.

basically I took about 30 litres from each 2 foot tank, washed the filter sponges in the sump water of the 6 footer, de chlorinated, added bacteria treatment as per the destructions. I also added a small bag and a 1/2 or non bleached sea salt crystals. can't remember what this is for tho. then test and moniter.

I don't recomend this to anyone but when all goes pear shaped and you need it going now, then it's a way to get it done.

I really don't recomend this method for really sensative fish but if a clown loach is the most sensative you have then laughing.
