Help to take down a saltwater tank
This is a question for my friend. She bought a house that came with an elaborate saltwater setup. They had no idea how to maintain the tanks and the people that they did hire to help ended up making things worse. The previous owner left no information on how to take care of the fish and tanks.
Now all the fish have been rehomed or sadly, have died. The tank is still full of water and live rocks. She would like to empty the tank.
We are looking for advice on how to do this properly and what we should do with the live rocks. I know nothing about saltwater tanks so I'm asking for a little help and no criticism please. The whole situation is much more complicated but we are now at the point that we need to take the tanks down. I advised her to use an aquarium vacuum pump to drain the water but beyond that I don't know. I'm sorry that I don't have more information so hopefully someone can still help.
