This is my first post on the forum .. so if i'm adding this post in the wrong section .. i'm sorry
Alrighty, so here's the first step we need to get through to set up our very first saltwater tank.
We just purchased a tank from a friend of mine. It's a 37 gallons tank that was used for freshwater fish.
A few months ago (june-ish or so) she moved from her place and had to put the tank into storage (she gave the fishies away to a good home
) She was told to leave about an inch of water in it alone with about a capful of bleach to keep parasites from "making a home" in the tank.
So we were thinking that 2-3 weeks of conditioning the water should get the bleach out and then we could start the cycling process. Because of the bleach and whatnot we thought it would be best to cycle the tank for about a month (a fishless cycle) just to make sure.
Having said that, anyone have any suggestions? tips? warnings?
