Hi people! Im new to the forum. Im looking for advice from the more experienced :) i am fairly new to the hobby.
so to keep it fairly short, i have a 37 gallon tank.I got my aquarium and set it up with help from the local petsmart. I had goldfish that lasted around 2 months. They are now gone and my tank has just been sitting, not running.
I’d like to start my tank up again so heres where i need help.
Should i empty the whole tank and start fresh OR should i keep the same water and just add the necessary water products? Thanks in advance ! :)

If the filter isn't running and given a food source, ammonia tank isn't cycled. Water needs replaced and tank needs to be cycled. There is no beneficial bacteria in water.
