I want to fill my used new to me tank and do a circulation soak.
It's a 45 gallon cube tank so how much vinegar should I use with the fill of water for best results? I'm going to put in a couple of powerheads to circulate the mixture, done this before but can't remember the mixture I used but it did a great job and cleaned up the tank like new. :redface:

In the same boat, I was going to just eyeball it. I used a 1:3 (vinegar to water) when I cleaned my sump out and it appeared to work wonders.

Welcome back Laurie! 4:1 water/vinegar always worked for me.

LOL:lol: I never really left the hobby, just not keeping SW any more so I'm not on Canreef that often. How about you Dunc got anything going right now?

I haven't got anything going at the moment either. Ryan took my stuff almost a year ago to look after it and I'm still yet to set something up. Hopefully within the next few months.

I have all the equipment left from my tank, just no tank, sump and light.

It's going to be planted freshwater when I do set it up, collecting everything I need so when the time comes I'll have it all including livestock which is being looked after by my friend Anthony aka "SeaHorse_Fanatic"right now.
Thanks though for the offer Dustin.
