I have not heard back from the landlord yet but I did talk to a few of the neighbors one of which just happens to keep fish. She has a 55 gallon with community tropical fish and she says she has never had any problems with her tank. She does not do anything special to the water such as haveing a special filtering system just does the water changes and stuff like we all do. So I am hopeing that means everything will be fine. She invited me in and her tank was very nice lots of plants and driftwood. She has lived here for 6 years. Thats a good sign right?

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Yes, I was hoping that the sulphur is minimal. Plants need sulphur, it is a macro-nutrient, but as I am not a botanist or chemist I don't know how plants handle the "sulphur" that is in the water as I don't kown enough about the form it takes. But a successful planted tank after several years running would suggest to me that there is no issue.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thats what I was hopeing you would say. I will move the tanks slowly one at a time starting with the smallest just to make sure there are no issues. Thank you again Byron for all your help.
