So heres my current situation, so i just recently broke down my 40 gl tall aquarium and got it all cleaned out and ready for my saltwater setup. Now a friend of my mine also has a 40gl setup thats currently running right now with about 30lb of live rock and sand and fish and inverts as well. Hes also at the same time going to break his tank down and willing to give me all his live rock and sand.
Now my main question is do you guys think that its ok for me to transfer his live rock and sand into my empty tank along with the water hes running right now to help cycle my tank faster?? His setup has been running for 3 yrs and very well fully established. He does not live very far maybe a few blocks so transfering these guys wouldnt take to long.
