I know some of you were really helpful about a post I wrote about something like this earlier. But I needed a bit more info on what to do here. I am getting my new tank and rock etc tomorrow, and want to be prepared.
I am trying to upgrade my tank right now, and I found someone on craigslist that had one set up for sale. I was planning on taking his fish (they are moving and cannot take them) and selling most. I am keeping his tank and accessories, and his sand and live rock. But here is a problem. He has a flourish of aptasia all over. Probably 30 of them.
I was told that most of what I do will leave me with possibly getting aptasia in my main tank. What if I do this....put all my water, fish, coral etc i (and my own sand and rock) in the new 55 g tank. Then, in the old 30 put only his aptasia-infested rock. Could I treat the rock only tank with something like Joe's Juice that way? Maybe buy some pep shrimp to put in there too? THen, as it goes away, transfer that rock to my main tank again?
I'm open to suggestions.
