| || | Converting a saltwater tank to a freshwater tank
Hello. I have a lead on a nice sized tank. I am supposed to be looking at it tomorrow. The guy said the previous owner kept saltwater in it as far as he knows. It is a bare tank (no decorations, filters, etc.), I will be supplying everything else new. I know to scrub, scrub, scrub, then scrub some more. And i know to use a vinegar and water mix, right? Is there any certain mixture i should use? Anything special about the vinegar to look for or is it all the same? Is there anything else to watch for? Does the Silicone soak up anything that will be harmful to the freshwater aquarium?
Thanks a lot.
