heres a tricky one.

when i bought the completly set up 100 gallon reef, i moved it without disturbing the sand bed. i bottled 50% of the water from the original setup. then i put all the stuff from the my original 75 in it with its water (not all of it), in the tank. i then added 10 gallons of new saltwater. by doing this i avoided having to cycle my tank in with all the inhabitants already in it. i had a short ammonia surge which i nocked out quickly, using the tlc product. i only lost one fish. i thought this was pretty good considering i did all this over a 16 hour period, 11 of it time on the road.

now for the question. the 100 gallon had been set up for 4 years and my 75 had been set up for 2.5 years. so is my tank considered a new setup or if not, how old is it?

any takers on this one??

Even though it was a combo of 2 established tanks I would personally consider it a new tank and just start from there. But the is just my opinion.

Not a salt guy, but the DSB was 4 years old? That's your tank age.
