They can explode, some rocks contain voids or gas pockets..

Guess it depends on the rock, but I see the concern.

I apologize for my bad advice XD

However, you could pour hot water on them. Or you could soak in hot water. It would speed up the process.

90 gallon. Since it is an oscar tank, your lights wont be too expensive as they only need to light up the tank, not support plant growth or reef growth.

And Audrey would certainly love the extra space.

Hell of a deal for 50 bucks.

Can I deal without a hood for 2 weeks until I get paid? I can put plywood or something over the top...

The 90 has to be resealed but I'm sure I can handle that

Lol yeah, not having a hood shouldn't be a big problem.

Make sure you keep some lights on the tank or in the room so Audrey knows when it is day time and night.

I keep the room lights on all day for her. She's scared of the light on the 10 gallon right now so I keep it off. I think that's because of the white sand in there though. She's very active with the lights off.

Can the little filter handle the bigger tank for like a week while my sun sun ships? It's an aquaclear 30. This girl is expensive! So I kinda need to stagger the purchases

Hmm... Do you have any floating plants, or can you pick some up? It would keep your parameters low.

Keep an eye on that ammonia!! If it starts rising make sure you are doing water changes.
