How long should I wait?
I've been planning on upgrading to a bigger tank from my 29 gallon for a while now. Earlier this year I found a 55 gallon on the town's junk days. At the time I didn't think I needed it for anything (little did I know then) and so I gave it to my nephew who had more room. He never used it, and decided he didn't want it, so I took it back and I'm going to use it for my new tank. I got it back this afternoon and filled it up outside. I had never tested it for leaks or anything, and neither did my nephew. How long should I let it sit before I can assume it's ok to use? I would like to get going on my little (not so little actually) project of bringing this tank back to life while I have the free time this weekend if possible. I want to do the painted background (with krylon make it stone paint), and if possible I would like to get to it tomorrow assuming no leaks on the tank. Should I let it sit longer?

Do you mean, how long should you cycle it? I would say at least a week, more is better.
10 gallon tank - 2 Ghost shrimp, fry, 1 Soft shell turtle, 5 crayfish, 1 baby catfish
10 gallon tank - 1 marbled crayfish in berry
50 gallon tank - 2 male guppies, 1 female guppy, 2 zebra danios, 1 pearl danio, 1 Angelfish, 1 male platy, 2 female platys, 2 silvery minnows
Pond - 1 cooter, 1 RES, 4 goldfish(my baby sis poisoned my pond)
