need help fast!!!!!!!!

i want to get playsand from HD do i have to rinse it out before i put it in a new tank? and i have a old tank with dead fish can i use them for cicling instead of shrimp? and i have LR sitting in a tank with dead fish and dirty water i was thinking of tanking out and rinsing it with freswater and brushing most of it off and then putting it in the thank while it cycles and after it cycles get some liverock and put it in there and give life to the other rock . is this right or should i put the liverock in while its cycling?





THanks

sounds like you might have a dead fish problem? If you are cycling a tank clean off your rock a little and just use it to cycle your tank.

I would rise the play sand out as long as it is the correct sand, and also add in the LR when you start up the tank on day 1.

I'm so sorry that your fish died. Do you know what happened to them?

Check out that link bro. The way I understand it is you set up everything with the saltwater let it start running and go buy the shrimp.
