Actually I emptied the water filtered through a sock into a 40g and a garbage container it was very clean , set up the new tank layered the bottom with one bag of new sand and returned it all rock, ran the tank for a minute and then transfered corals over to the new tank without disturbing anything

Oh shoot was I supposed to acclimate the corals to the new tank even if It was a quick transfer with the temp the same and using the current water? Ah Im all out have to wait this thing out or empty and start all over

Kind of wish I started the tank over and put my corals from the leaking tank over into a holding tank cause I wouldn’t have had all this happen....... miss my sticks and gonna have to start over they were growing nicely and coloring was great
