So my entire livestock in my DT has passed away, Its time for a fresh start.
I have turned my tanks temp up to 85deg and left on a UV Sterilizer, Tomorrow I plan to lower the salt to next to nothing and I have removed rocks and started brushing them off and polishing em up. I placed rocks into a bucket with no water with hopes to kill everything off of them.
Should I remove all the sand and toss it? Leave the sand in tank at 85deg and 0 salt? SB is 3-4" deep maybe more just take off top layer leave rest in tank? Scrap the top layer, remove middle/bottom level, place in bucket with water at 1.009 salinity or no salt?
Equip that was in tank Do I let dry at room temp and leave out of water for a few weeks before reusing? Will running 160+deg water over it kill any ich on equip?
I learned a lot with this experience and Instead of giving up and never trying again I wont let this stop me and I will keep my head up and push forward.
