Just talked to the Boss... he said that the LR
came out of a reef tank (he knows the customer) so it should be fine as far as copper. However, it has been out of the tank a lot longer than I initially thought, probably about 6 weeks.
This person tore his SW
tank down to convert it to FW
and the rock has just been sitting in a Rubbermaid since then I think. Does that change what I need to do with the rock? Should I throw a shrimp in there to get it cycling? Can I leave a lid on the Rubbermaid to avoid lots of top-offs (and dead shrimp smell) or is that bad?
Finatic, I checked out your link and the prices look great, but I still think it will cost me a little less to just use my employee discount. What is the equivalent T5 or VHO
fixture to the PC
that I'm looking at? It needs to be 48" as I am planning for a 90 gallon. melosu58, your tank is awesome and gives me high hopes for a medium light reef of my own!
I really appreciate all the help so far. You can expect to see a lot more of me on the SW
forums from here on out!
