You will need a saltwater phosphate test kit
You will also need saltwater test kits for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, and I would also strongly suggest calcium and alkalinity test kits as well. ...

You will need more than that. Don't forget, you will need good flow to have a healthy FOWLR set-up. A lot more than a skimmer and possibly a media reactor (for the phosphate remover) will provide....
you can add water from your tap to you tank when using prime. Not too sure about other products
The below video will give you the general idea
Without knowing how the 30 gallon stand was built, can't really say for sure if it will hold the extra ~100 lbs.
Generally speaking, stands need to support the weight of the tank along all 4 edges...
Do a very very large water change below you leave but do not change the filter media.
If you can have someone feed them once or twice during your time away then they will be fine. Just don't feed...
I would not think a 40 breeder would be big enough. They need some length to build up good activity, and the minimum for that would be 4 feet.
You would be surprised how active congos can be when...
Yes, pics would help a lot here
You typically would see white fuzzy edges on the fins in most cases of fin rot
I can't see anything in your pic like you are describing. Can you post a better pic ?
After keeping them for many years I have come to understand what many others have already stated, nothing less than a 4 foot tank. A 75 or 90 gallon would be best. You have to factor in activity...

It is soooooooooo hard to get a pic of any of our cats
If you wan to be sure, wait 4 months
You will not see anything in the tank when it is sitting without fish to tell you the tank is ick free. You just have to make sure you waited the minimum...

Showmebutterfly did a great job of provding you with some help/answeres.
I would like to add a little to her answeres
1- Yes, your live rock does the same function as fully seeded biological ...
Hang in there !!!
Follow the instructions on the bottle to the letter.
Most of the good quality copper meds will tell you to complete a 1/2 dose, wait 24 to 48 hours and dose the rest. All of this is one time...
Treating in a properly set up QT tank is always the best option. Leave the shrimp and crab in the other tank and keep that tank empty (without fish that is) for at least 3 months. That is the...
I just signed up for our next competition in late August
Time to start training some more.
If you treat that tank, keep in mind you rock will soak up some of the meds and release them back into the water latter on. That will not allow you to keep any corals in the the same tank with that...
Welcome to the forum
Glad to hear your little boy is doing better
I have heard of other little kids going through similar situations. They came out of it just just fine.
Perhaps a follw-up vist to the doctor...
It feels great to be able to get out and do things with my dog again
Other than treating with meds, you can only wait it out have hope for the best. Treating with food will only mean the fish will become re-infected.
You best option at this point is to leave the...
If that is correct, and you actually have 5ppm of nitrites, then I would suggest a very very large water change before your rocks start soaking that in. 50% or more would be in order.
Another day of competitions, and another high in class ribbon along with a CKC Rally Obedience novice title.
Pepper and I entered another CKC obedience trail, but this time it was a Rally trial. I was a little worried as this is different than what we trained for. but Pepper and I picked up on it pretty...
see if you can have someone else test your nitrites with a different test kit, just to make sure your current test kit is giving you accurate readings
