I just picked up a good deal on Craigslist and it came with a 46 gallon Bow with black pine stand, lights, glass hoods and a Fluval 404 all for $100. Now my question is, this was used in a salt water setup and if there anything special I need to do to the Fluval 404 before I use it? I'm planning on getting all new media but should I clean it out with vinegar or something like that? Thanks.

You can clean it with vinegar and plenty of disposable sponge algae cleaners. If it is really bad you can do bleach and rinse I mean rinse until you don't want to rinse any more then do it again. Then set up the filter ina bucket or tub and dose with prime , I would triple dose or even more to be sure. Then let it dry for a couple days and all should be good. Nice find. What are you gonna throw in there?

Thanks Flippercon. I think I'm just going to throw in another breeding pair of BGJDs. Then when my Gold JDs are big enough, pair them up with some of the EBs that I'm growing out.
