    Johnny.

    This could be dangerous. What if you pick up some sort of disease from someone’s tank?

    Cool

    there will be no fish or corals for at least 6 to 8 months. I'm curing my DIY rock at work [free waterchanges] and will add Live rock around CHRISTMAS time. THIS IS THE BIGGEST PROJECT I'VE EVER TAKEN PART OF! working 7 days a week for 2 years with a few off really sucks! but it'll be worth it in the longrun.

    What is the minimum number of gallons for you to come pick up? I have a 25 gallon, so there won't be much at a time, but you're welcome to it.

    I'm sure it will rock Johnny... I wasn't trying to be negative. I was just concern. No hard feelings meant by my comments.

    Johnny with you working 7 days a week when are you going to get time to get all the water and gunk you need to set up this 30g tank?

    To be fair to Johnny when I set up a new FW tank I use water from my other tanks, take the sponge from my old tank and some gunk form the gravel and set it up, and never have a break in problem.
