Well I have a dilema...I set up a tank at my home and cycled if which lasted about four weeks... there is no live rock (Quite hard to get in NZ) anyway it had finished cycling and I did a water change and was ready to place fish in. However I then had to move out of home and now need to move the tank to my new place. So it has been sitting at home with the filter and heater on no lights for about 2 months. I was going to empty it the tank but keep two buckets full of the old saltwater and move the dead coral rock I have in it so that any bacteria that has formed will remain alive?? is that viable?? also I was going to leave water in the filter so that bacteria would not die off as well...so will any of this work???
If not I will have to cycle it again...Yay more waiting!! but any advice would be much appreciated!!!
