Python from a freshwater tank?


New member
Ok. Complete newbie to reef tanks. I have a stupid question. Can I use the python I use for my freshwater tank on my new saltwater tank? Or should I get a separate python for the salt tank?

Thanks all. :)

Only thing to worry about would be if copper is/was used on the fresh setup. But even then I wouldnt be too worried at all about it. give it a good rinsing and use it. you'll be fine :)

I use the same syphon between my turtle tank and the reef and see no real issues. I don't rinse it off between each use either so it probably has had some contact between each tank.
