You know, if it's that "muddy" and dirty, you might as well remove all the water, besides, moving with even 20% water left, plus substrate is going to put a lot on that tank glass... I say drain it all, start over with fresh rinsed substrate and then put the LR back and start a cycle... that way you arent setting yourself up for more problems.

You can trade the star or set them up in a smaller tank temp for a few weeks while you recycle...

That's what I would do... just my 2 cents Good luck and keep us posted

That is exactly what I did. Gave the starfish away, and drained it. I had to work 6 hrs tonight, so I wouldnt have gotten a chance to take care of it, plus it was way too much work. The added stress of the move + the new water conditions probably would have been too much.

So there we go.... I might start a salt tank, or I might sell it. I'll ask you some ?s if I keep it.

Thanks again ya'll
