I', new to this fourm and this is my first post. Hoping to get some expert advice and guidance on my venture to convert my FW
aquarium to a SW
I currently have a 110g FW
tank with a variety of Cichlids. I'm looking at converting the tank to Salt Water one. I'm getting the equipment and accessories for the project.
I have a Dolphin external Canister Filter in place, have procured the Sump and Skimmer (ViaAqua). The sump is custom made from a 30G aquarium tank and is designed to house Bio Balls, Live Rock and Sand for Bio Filtering.
Now, in my hunt for Live Rock, I came accross a contact who has a friend who has had a SW
aquarium with Live Rock, however, all the fishes in the tank have died recently due to lack of care. He is looking at selling his setup and is willing to part away with the Live Rock and Substrate.
Can someone advice me if I can go ahead and buy the Live Rock? I'm concerned as the tank as been under bad care and would this affect the quality of the Live Rock. Also the Skimmer and Filteration has been turned off since the death of the fishes.
Can I get this rock and have them cured in my tank. Is is safe to do so? In India, its really difficult to find people who sell Live Rock as its against government rules. Someone please adivce on how to go about this.
