I am getting a 30 gallon aquarium for free from a friend. I am going to pick it up on Wednesday/Thursday.
It is COVERED in algae. Her exact words were "I haven't touched it in a year". In fact, she said other than feeding it, she just adds tap water........
So, with that being said, I am going to need some help. She said she has a TON invested, and I will get a list later on tonight. As far as transporting, this is what I am thinking (1-2 hr drive). Empty 10 gallons out. Put 10 gallons in a container with the few craps and starfish, and keep the other 10 gallons in the tank (keeping gravel and filter media there for bacteria purposes).
I want to post pics but I dont have a place to upload them too. Any suggestions? (Or can I send them to someone, and you can post?)
I am new to the saltwater world, so bare with me while I try to save these poor guys. I dont know alot yet (she is e-mailing me a list of stuff she has), but I do know it is an Eclipse hood w/ biowheel. So at least it is some marineland stuff which shouldnt be too bad.
I guess im about to have to do a few water changes....
I will update very often on this thread, so please check back to help.
