All you need to do if you intend on using the tank anytime soon is feed it with a pinch of food occasionally, this will keep the bacteria alive.

QT tanks, if they have been used with medication at all, should be completely cleaned with a vinegar solution to remove totally any traces of medication.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
