Do you guys have any advice on tearing down/cleaning a tank?

I'm about to move and will need to have my tank torn down for a few months probably. I've already given away my last remaining fish to a friend.

I'm assuming this means I can count on having to re-start the bacterial filtration I've got going in my eheim canister. Unfortunate because it was doing a good job but maybe it would be a good opportunity to just replace all of my media?

Any advice?

Yeah.. As others hv said.. Run the filter in a bucket. Or find a LFS who can let you have his media after some time.

General ACD talk  - 
 
We're trying to decide what age we should spay our 10 month old puppy, Scout, at. There seems to be a lot of conflicting information on whether it's best to do it before or after their first heat cycle. Our predicament is that the daycare we were taking her to (we both work days) stopped taking her at 7 months old until she is fixed and we really need to get her back in as soon as possible so she can get some much needed exercise during the days. Are there any particular considerations we should be aware of with cattle dogs? She's 25-30lb now so she probably only has another 10lb of growing left. 

Any help would be much appreciated.

+Justin Kent Hi, I have had 4 ACD dogs over the last 25yrs. None of my ACD have ever had urinary tract infections, or any other major illnesses. I had a female ACD "Skye" for 15yrs. She died 5 years ago. I had her desexed at 6mths. There was never any issues that the vet was concerned about ,or me to not go ahead and get her desexed. I was recommended to do it with all my dogs by vets. I live in Australia where we have alot of ACD dogs, and alot of my friends own ACD both male, and females. Generally here in Australia everyone is encouraged to have their dogs desexed no matter what breed they are due to health reasons for the dog later in life, cancer ect, and unwanted litter issues aswell. Unless or course you are a breeder, or want the litter from your dog. My female "Skye" ACDs mother was my friends ACD and had 3 litters accidently before being desexed. She would jump the fence at home to get out as soon as she went on heat before the owners knew it. One night we spent all night looking for her which was quite stressful worrying that she could have been hit by a car. She returned home in the morning herself. :-) The last litter she had was due to another neighbours ACD male that broke into her house through a large cat flap in the back door during the night, she was locked inside sleeping. My friend found them downstairs in her kitchen. Lol. My ACD female "Skye" never had any post operation problems, and had a healthy,happy life .At 15yrs old she got ill suddenly one day and i took her to the vet. She passed away early the next morning while still in the vets as she was staying there overnight. She died from old age organ shutdown.I would do the desexing the same if i bought another female as they can socialise with other dogs earlier, which they need to learn to do without risking pregnancy. I also did not want her to have a litter without i kept the puppies as then i would have worried about them having good owners that would give them as happy lives as she had. The desexing didnt seem to change her temperament after. She was always a happy, friendly and loving dog since i bought her at 8 weeks old. I have a male ACD "Cody" now he is in my profile pictures. I hope this helps with any anxiety about getting her desexed. This information is just my opinion from having ACD dogs and on advice that my vets gave to me over the years. The decision is always the owner of the dog. I hope you have many happy years with her as i did with "Skye".

Cool.  One of my favorite memories of my old dog Tattoo was a camping trip up in the Sierra Nevadas.  We had a little lake all to ourselves and he was off the leash most of the time.

I've been going to Dr. Asai for my entire adult life and a good portion of my childhood life, he has always been incredible. A true professional, I'd certainly recommend him to anyone.
