Either way, he should re-cycle his tank. Some of the bacteria die off, could have fed the BB for a couple of months.

Update, I purchased a piece of live rock yesterday and added it to my existing rock that has been sitting for years. I was hoping that the new piece of live rock would help cycle the tank. I test my water this mornig and this is what I have: NH3 0.50, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10, PH 8.2. Where am I in the cycle process? When I first decided to the tank going again I changed the water but still left about 8-10 gallons of the orginal water.

Looks pretty good after sitting for years! Cycle is just starting you can help it out by adding an ammonia source
