Changing from Salt water to fresh
Is there anything I should be concerned about changing over an aquarium setup from salt water to fresh. The reason I ask is I have found a deal on a 75 tank complete with sump,lights heater and stand for a really good price.
Here is the add for the tank.
Take the price and divide it by two and that is what I can get it for. Please let me know if it is a good deal or not and if it can easily be changed.

A good cleaning is really all it needs
If you are not going to use the sump, get a few good plugs for the bulk head flanges.
If you are using the sump, clean it out really good as well and soak the return pump in a mild viniger solution overnight.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

If your getting it for half the listed price I'd say you have a great deal. $300 for a 70 gallon with all the trimmings as well as the cabinet is a steal. Well done.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

Looks very clean and well cared for if the picture is recent. Good buy for $300. But having water in it is a sign of no leaks. I won't buy an empty tank that's been sitting around. I'd want to see water in it.

One nice thing too is that light from what I can tell is probably worth what you are paying for the set up. It's going to be over kill for a fresh water tank. I would sell it and most likely not have much money in the entire set-up.Tracy
