Anyone with experience converting small marine tank to a Neo tank?
I have a gallon tank that housed a marine hermit crab until he outgrew it. I want to keep some easy Neos in it--snowballs or blue pearls or black rose.
There is no calcium build up in the tank, just some sand that is stuck between the caulking and glass.
Will a good water and toothbrush scrub be safe enough to then plant and cycle for a Neo tank?
I have read that any salt at all will kill them and I am just dubious that something that was at 1.025 spg for over a year will be fine with a good scrub down.
Anyone with experience doing this? I searched for a thread and could not find one on this particular question.
