I have a friend who wants to get rid of his 12g nano tank. It contains live sand, live rock, and 2 clownfish. I have been looking for advice but it is not always clear.
What is the best way to go about this? I need to get it moved from his place to mine tonight or tomorrow.
He lives about 5-10 minutes away. I would like to make sure that the stability of the tank is perserved as best as possible.
My main problems are advice on the live rock and sand.
Can I keep the sand in the tank during transport or will that stress the bottom of the tank too much?
I have head to keep the live rock covered with wet newspaper, but wouldn't newspaper ink contaminate everything?
Where is a good place to buy a container to reserve the water that does not contain any harsh chemicals?
He said the water needs to be changed, should I add a bit of pre-mixed saltwater when I get it to my home in addition to the reserved tank water?
Thanks in advanced for any tips/advice.
