Hello all,

I'm looking to upgrade my tank Very Happy and I've been looking at the Aqua Medic Percula 120 Bow. If anyone has this tank or knows anyone with it I'd appreciate any reviews as I don't want to go wasting my money.
Also if anyone's upgraded or changed tanks in the past how much trouble is it?

Thanks all once again.

I have changed tanks recently, about a month and a half ago. Since I was going on christams break I set up a tank of the same size(10 gallons) at my grandmas house where I would be staying, did a fishless cycle, and everything was OK. If you use the same filter as in your other tank and the same water, there is no real need to cycle, just get another filter that fitls the tank size, and allow it to run also for long enough to establish its own bacteria. Using the same substrate will also bring over a lot of bacteria. Since the cycling process is just building up bacteria, you will beat the system. Just like doing a big water change.
