    No static for not running a skimmer. Just know ur limitations and you'll be fine. Try soaking the rock in some regular water for a few days. Do this outside or in the garage cuz it'll stink. Hose water is fine. Rinse a few times and change the water out a few times tip the air freshener smell is gone. If it goes away then scrub and rinse it and let it dry. If it still stinks of air freshener then you may need to get more aggressive with the cleaning and then look into acid or bleach. If it seems fine then start the cycle again with plenty of carbon and do a decent water change before you add livestock again

    Ik I should get one and I will soon but the thing is I don't have much of a budget when it comes to reef related stuff. Mostly because I'm in high school and don't have a job.
    So far what I've done with the main tank is just empty it out. And throw away the sand. Btw in doing so getting a major headache from the stench of air wic mixed w seawater. I have the live rock still but I don't want to start another tank without completely ridding the rock of the chemicals and I've decided to go through the process of cycling and building up new bacteria again. The thing I'm unsure of is how exactly to do it. I'm getting suggestions like bathing it with acid and afterwards running a bunch of carbon but idk how to do all that or if it'll work.

    Thinking of it as throwing away money will get you in to trouble... Thats basically what you do in this hobby lol. I can't recall how many times I tried to save money and ended up making things worse. It took me 5 attempts to keep saltwater fish alive when I first started because I didn't want to throw away money. Actually, now that i think about it, I didn't throw away that money because I learned from those experiences. I basically paid to gain knowledge.

    Wether you keep the rock or start over, your going to spend money to fix the problem. Every one is giving you good advise, there are so many ways to fix these kind of things just do it right. Keep us posted and we will help you as much as we can. Sorry for your losses and I hope the remaining fish recover.
