I was just about at the end of the cycling process with my 10gl nano when I moved to a different apartment. In the midst of the move and move of jobs my nano just kinda of got lost in it all. So, now that everything has calmed down, I'd really like to get it up and going again.
I have about 15lb of lr
that's been sitting half-in and half-out of water for a couple months now, and it's very obvious that all of the larger critters have died off.
I'm planning on scrubbing down the rocks to get rid of all the decay, but I think all I'll have left is some coralline algae if I'm lucky.
Will it matter much right now if I scrub and rinse them the easy way with just de-chlorinated water, or would it be worth it to mix up a batch of salt water just to rinse with?
As far as the sand, should I just throw it out and start over with some fresh sand, or do you guys think it would be ok to leave the old stuff in there?
Also, if my lr
is beyond help, what is the best way to re-seed it?
Thanks in advance for any advice you guys have for me. :}
