life rock from bad tank?
There is a tank at my work, that was setup as a saltwater by someone who had no idea what they were doing.
It was filled with tap water, some chemical were added to the water.
sand was not washed. and proper amount of salt was not measured.
There was a clown fish in there that survived for about 3 months, but it looked very unhappy.
water was never tested for any type of proper levels, just tap water regularly added once in a while.
MY MAIN QUESTION IS
there is currently 2 live rocks in there, they are taking the tank down, so I was thinking about taking the live rocks and putting them in my tank that is currently cycling. one of the rocks has some black slime stuff on it, I cant really tell if they have any life left on them.
IS IT A GOOD IDEA FOR ME TO TAKE THOSE ROCKS TO PUT IN MY TANK?
SHOULD I WASH THE ROCKS WITH REGULAR WATER?
IF I WASH WILL IT KILL THE THE LIFE ON IT?
