Tank/plant cleaner

Postby ilovefish » 2009-08-13 17:58

^_^ Hello everyone!
I've seen bottles of tank/plant cleaner in my local aquatic shops, and was just wondering whether they're worth using or should I use something else? I have an old tank that needs a good scrub before its next use!

Look at the ingredients list and use common sense is usually the best course of action.. I personally use thin (unscented, without any additions) pure bleach. It kills almost everything. It also costs in the region of 20p (37c) per litre. I usually fill the tank (while it's in the bath/shower) with a dilute solution and leave it for a few hours. Then rinse it with clean water very, very well. Bleach is only suitable for glass, gravel, some rocks. It is not suitable for wood. Make sure you wear gloves while using cleaning products!
