I am still setting up the tank (58g FOWLR
), as I need a few items yet, but getting ready to purchase LR
and start the cycle. Someone on Craigslist in my area is moving and selling their system. I am thinking of purchasing 50 lbs of LR
that they say has been in their tank for 3 years and has nice purple Coraline algae. Should I do this? Will their nice coraline end up dying in my tank because it is being newly cycled and causing more problems than just buying LR
without coraline growth? Thanks!
