 Dear  All
 Please  help  me  with  this.
 One  of  the  hobbyist  is  discontinuing  his  SW  tank.  He  had  this  running  for  about  3-4  years.  I  had  bought  all  the  live  rocks  form  this  guy.
 Now  he  has  emptied  his  aquarium  and  stored  the  water  in  Plastic  bags.
 Would  this  water  be  beneficial  if  I  used  it  it  my  aquarium.  Have  heard  people  use  used/old  filter  pads  for  biological  purposes.
 would  this  water  with  the  bacteria  be  equally  beneficial  for  me.\?
 
 PS:  My  aquarium  is  now  doing  very  fine  and  am  facing  no  problems  wrt  water  parameters.
 this  guy  supplying  me  the  same  had  not  done  a  water  change  for  about  8  months.  His  tank  was  functioning  with  no  skimmers,filters  but  had  enormous  amount  of  live  rocks  (part  of  which  I  purchased).  
 
 Is  it  advisable  to  use  this  water  in  my  main  tank?

 how  long  has  it  been  stored  in  the  bags  ?  
 
 If  it's  more  than  2-3  days  then  don't  use  it..

 You're  joking  right?  Good  one.  if  not  why,  pray  tell  us,  why  would  you  ever  want  to  use  used  water  which  is  now  in  plastic  bags  and  on  it's  way  to  stagnation?  Your  friend  deserves  the  marine  equivalent  of  the  filmfare  awards  simply  for  coming  up  with  the  idea.  You're  doing  everything  right  except  researching  and  reading  about  this  hobby.

 Well  I  just  had  doubts.
 There  is  still  lots  of  water  in  his  aquarium  (  he  had  a  6  ft  x  2ft  x  3  ft  aquarium).  
 I  wasn't  planning  to  replace  all.  Just  thought  that   about  5-10  litres  in  my  300  ltr  tank  could  be  used  if  and  only  if  it  has  any  beneficial  effects  wrt  the  bacteria.
 
 This  is  the  best  research  space  as  all  practical  experiences  come  to  fore.  Hence  this  query  before  action(  and  subsequent  reaction).
 My  question  seems  to  be  already  answered..  Smile
