Thanks for all your help! Our only LFS
is PETCO:-(. We made some calls to Denver and talked with a few guys who maintain tanks and one said he may be able to find it a home in a 200+ tank. He is even going to drive up and get it. I sure he will turn around and sell it but I don't care as long as he is in a bigger tank. I just felt bad for the thing, even though I did not like him. Once we have him gone our plan is to put the surviving puffer and hermit crab in a spare tank while we clean the rock and the sand. Then we are going to get the products suggested by Roka and run the tank for awhile to get as much of the copper out. I think we are going to put some supper covered LR
( like that expensive Florida stuff) to hopefully, eventually (years) get it to spread and make the tank not look so barren. I think we will also not put so much rock in. There was so much rock it looked crowded to me. Then we will put the puffer and the crab in. Does this sound reasonable?
I asked her to test for copper but she said she did not have a kit for it so guess what I ordered? I finally got the last test kits I ordered a while ago, its rough living in BUFU.
Will I need to cycle the tank like I did for my reef tank? Sorry I have not had time to read yet. The semester is almost over
