So I got the new 5 gallon Eclipse tank http://pet.imageg.net/graphics/produ...760529t400.jpg
It has the old filter in it, that the guy used, but it has something like kinda green on it, should i throw it away and get a new one?
He had an agressive Gourami in it for 3ish years till it died.
also, is there a need to sterilize it? if so, how do i do that? since i can't use soap.
and part 2. How do i do the fishless cycle for this tank?
I am probably going to be walked through this... but i have some testing strips *not as good i know, but it was the only ones they had under $50, not joking* that test 5 different things, PH, Nitrites, Nitrates, Hardness, and Amonia.
so help please!
oh also, Surimi gets his new tank this evening. I got it all set up, and decided to put him in the new tank, since he would really like more swimming room, and the fewer/or less, water changes i know he would prefer.
