Rescuing a JBJ nano cube
I wasn't sure what category to put this in because it could be equipment, nano aquariums, or general planted tank but what I'm wondering is if there will be any problems cleaning up and re-purposing a 12 gallon nano cube that was saltwater before. The thing I'm unsure of is the fact that it ran saltwater for 4 years or so and I'm sure will have corraline algae to clean off the glass as well as excess salt etc. Will i have any negative effects or nutrients if I clean it up or is it even possible to get it clean enough to go full planted? I'm wanting to do a soil based tank densely planted with no or DIY CO2 and shrimp and i know how sensitive inverts can be.
EDIT:also any tips/tricks for getting it clean without scratching the glass or anything if it is able to be salvaged would be much appreciated.
Thanks for bearing with the possibility of being in the wrong category and I'm really excited to get it started up. The 5.5 gallon I have now just isn't doing it for me.
