9 months of a freshwater plant system with a deep sandbed and now it's time
to move it to the basement cause I ain't in a position to pay for A/C this

Here's how it looked minutes ago:

Lost on all of this...? This will bring you up to speed:

No plants have been added since that picture in the library. In fact,
competition has ruled out a couple and benefit others. The "Crypt" field is
totally solid now (to the left). Not looking forward to replanting that
hehheh. Apongetons have gone into dormancy (to the right), I'm hoping this
will stimulate them back into action.

All in all... Shouldn't be too bad (any more than moving a 75 gallon with a
little extra wet sand to carry). It will be interesting to get a good whiff
of what's down in that sand. There should be a mild Hydrogen Sulfide smell,
but shouldn't be overwhelming. In any case, I'm aerating the heck out of it
tonight when I'm done :)

When I get all done, I'll get some pics of the new 75 with Natives and deep
sand... Gotta move the darter's 30 gallon down too, but after this... I
should be able to do that in my sleep.

Off I go... Wheeeeeeeeee....
