Started setting up my new 36 gallon bow front saltwater setup I got off craigslist. all I need to do is add salt tomorrow and I was told all the dead small carcasses will start my cycle. I really wish the guy wouldn't have drained it and killed them :-(

I'd pre mix
I also would clean out the dead snails and stuff
rather than trying to fix someone elses mess
I like clean starts otherwise you never know what road blocks you'll hit in the process
I bet that smells like roses lol

The tank was drained. The guy was shipping off to boot camp and he was trying to sell it and he couldn't and so he drained it and put the rock and snails in a bucket and the sand in another. I had to do a, lot of cleaning everything had a thick hard white layer
