what a way to setup my first SW tank!!!
I want to share my adventure last night with everyone here. My friend had a 65G SW tank here at our office that had a seal come lose and started to leak out at a increasing rate of flow. He had all kinds of rock and fish and other living things in his tank. he grabbed trash cans and a bucket and started to pull everything he could get out and place in to the buckets and rocks went in the trash cans. we then took my old 10g fresh water tank that was empty and cleaned it out and used sand from his tank and some of the water to get it going. He gave me three rocks some other things that I don't know what they are. fish are 1 fire fish, 1 royal grommy, arrow crab, emerald crab, star fish, some snails and some hermit crabs. in 10 mins we had the tank up and running. I ve never seen a SW tank come to life so quickly. its been about 20 hours since it was done and the royal is getting very Territorial but everyone did eat today.. oh and there is a peppermint shrimp also. everything else got safely to the LFS to find new homes.
here is a couple picts
