My latest tank. Great find! *with pics*

Friend of mine gave me a number for a lady selling a 45 gallon tank. Tank, stand, hood, lights, magnum 220 canister filter, and all the accessories with it $50. I took it, of course!

Got a SW master kit, the canister filter, two huge ornamental rocks, plants, gravel (which I had to trash), nets, undergravel filter with two powerheads, food, algae pads, salt, hydrometers, everything.

Here be some pictures:

Stand. It needs some work done to it, but overall, a nice one.

Devilish...I'm notifying the authorities as we speak. That is a great set up and the price wasn't bad either. Now, since you don't need the tank, perhaps we should talk...maybe?

I've got it, yep. It's really nice gravel too. What happened though, was that the person who had the tank, used it for SW, and I am using this tank as a FW tank. I don't have the time to soak and boil it all, so I just dumped it out, and put in some new gravel I had left over from my turtles tank. It's sitting here in two 2 gallon buckets right now. 8)

So how long would it take to get all that salt out and have it be safe for FW?
