How long can i leave them in there before i have the tank put back together?

She couldnt tell me what kind of coral but that they are multipying and are very healthy. there are 7 fish and comes with an HOB refugium and protein skimmer with an extra pump for canister filter in the cabinet underneth.

I guess my main question is since i am getting an established tank can i reuse the same water since i will be resetting it all back up shortly after taking it down or should i add new water and sand and rock, use the 48 hour instant bacteria then try an introduce the fish and coral into the tank?

A partial water change is probably the way to go but i sold a 92 gallon reef and they took all the water and everything lived. 0 loss. I was impressed. Good luck

good luck DJ It will be a stressful time until you get everything stable but you will be fine. I did it and I had never had a fish. You did right by coming to this site (cause its awesome) and seeking advice. Again good luck and keep us informed on how it goes. Oh and if you didnt know WE LOVE PICS. So if you can post some of the move and after you get it set up.
