Hi again
So I may have found my dream tank with everything including established coral and live rock in Bloomington, MN. The problem is that I am a total newbie to the hobby and do not have a clue about transport/keeping fish, rock, coral, crabs alive and then setting this thing up. We are worried that we won't set up the stuff correctly, etc. I am able to borrow a pickup so that is taken care of. The tank is a 72g bowfront. If ANYONE has advice it would be greatly appreciated. My husband and I are afraid we will destroy everything.
The move would be Rochester to Bloomington.
Thanks,
TK:read: "studying hard"

i think he is also giving you an RO/DI unit......you will need salt and some RO water to get things going....just keep the rock wet in transport.
bag the fish and corals...they will do fine for 2-4 hrs....get new sand or make sure the old sand is washed.....he is selling a plug&play system, so you should be good to go.
Ill PM you Dirks # for the OR pump.
PS: dont think he has much you could kill in his livestock.

If you still need help with this I can send you some detailed instructions on how to do this. I have moved many established tanks including an entire reef shop, so I can help you out with any questions you may have. Let me know, and if you have specific quiestions just shoot them over to me.

update on tank

Thanks to all for the advice but I have decided not to get the established tank for now.
I will let you know if I need advice on new ones or something down the line.
