Can't add much to what's been suggested except to say if you do decide to get a bigger tank (or indeed use your 40 for a dwarf) you must be absolutely sure that there has NEVER been copper in the tank, it is fatal to cephs an impodssible to get rid of!

Is there a way to test for copper in a tank?? I have a 40 gallon as well that I managed to get for free and was thinking about starting a cuttlefish tank, not anytime soon, I know I would have to cycle it and everything first, and I want to do a little more research :read:, but maybe by the summer when I have a little more time.
 
You can either bring in a sample of water to your lfs and they'll test it for you or you can also buy a copper test.

you can test it if you fill it with water..... OR as an extra precaution you could start by re-sealing it with fresh silicone :smile:

You'd have to be sure you got EVERY scrap of old silicon out! Copper is pernicious stuff and will seep out of the smallest piece!
