Yeah I know that I guess what I was asking was the best way to do that. I don't have a spare tank so will be fish be ok in a large plastic tub or polystyrene box overnight with a heater and airstone so I can drain my tank?It will need to be drained and then repaired.
Hi, I'm don't even know where the water is coming from. I've decided I'm going to buy a new tank as I've no idea how to repair and wouldn't ever trust the tank ( especially if I fixed it) the stand is water damaged now anyway but it's a slow leak at the moment so I've left the fish and everything in the tank, reduced the water and will be ordering a new tank tomorrow. Hopefully it will be here in a couple of days so I can transfer everything straight over. I'll then be able to try and find the problem with the original tank. I'll then try and sell it for spares or repairs.I have a friend who kept a ton of fish in large, plastic storage bins, with cycled filters and plants, for several months during a crisis. Both the fish and the plants increased in numbers during their stay in the fish hotel. So, I've never done that, but I know it can work. Do you know how to repair a tank? It isn't the easiest job, but doable. There are lots of videos on the net about how to do it. Good luck!
