Posted by James N: ok i feel dumb asking this cause i should know a answer but i dont cause ive never really had to deal with this thing before. i just picked up a used fishtank for free and it needs cleaned and considering its from someone i dont personally know i want to make shure its cleaned well what would be a good thing to clean it with?

  • We only use hot water. i dont think there are any safe chemicals to clean it with. when i wash my own tanks down witch hasnt been in 4 years i used just hot water also wasnt shure if there was anything safe to use other then water so i figured id ask lol
  • Water and white vinegar works the best!
  • well i didnt know you could clean a tank with vinegar. i clean a lot of other things in my house with it but not our tanks. thanks.
  • Bleach. Kills all, rinse well, rinse again this time using a little dechlorinator. This is what I do with all my tanks. And I have hundreds as an angelfish Breeder.
  • i thought about bleach i have used bleach before but i wasnt shure if it was really safe or not.
  • If you way with bleach, letting it completely dry works the same as dechlorinator. Chlorine is a gas that quickly evaporates.
