Converting a tank to fresh water
Hello, This is my first post at this site. I have a 55 gallon tank that was used for saltwater. It has been in storage for 3 years and I would like to convert it to fresh water. I realize that I can't use any cleaning solutions but what is the chance of rinsing the tank to get rid of all the salt and residue?
Using a hydrometer is an excellent suggestion. I also have a wet/dry filter with a venturi and I will attempt to clean these and also use the hydrometer on them too. Thanks for the suggestions. If I can't remove all of the salt, then it looks like I will have another marine aquarium.
