Hi guys, quick question. I'm moving a 100 gallon tank tomorrow and I found a guy on craiglist that does this as I can't since one I have no idea how to cut the PVC
pipe and reattach it and two I simply don't have a truck and the time to move it.
Anyhow, my question is, the first time I moved the tank to another location, the guy I went through saved half of the water and then I had to buy another about 60 gallons. At the time, the tank was in good condition and the water was salvageable.
This time however, the tanks water has not been changed in 3 months (don't worry no animals, just live rock). The guy I'm going through now recommends we just start fresh and use hose water with a dechlorinator to start off. Does this sound like a horrible idea? I've never used hose water, even to start the tank off. I obviously wouldn't put any animals in the tank and let it cycle, but can I use hose water to fill up the tank initially?
This guy says yes. It would be a real help if I could use it since we wouldn't have to lug around all of the water and I would save a bunch of money buying it at the fish store. Please let me know, thanks.
