Sena thank you. I also want to add something. Air dry heater and filter after you wash it. And after you disinfect the tank wash it and wipe it and wash it again make sure there is no residue left from the vinegar. Also air dry the tank.
Also i have a question. If plant caries disease for example fungus and it quarantine how you know that it not carry disease any more? I would afraid to buy a plant. I bought a plant a few times before in the tube. I think it safe to buy in the tube but a lot of times it rotten. But i guess it always exchangeable...

what I do, is get hardy plants. I put them in tap water NO conditioner. now, wimpy plants may/will die, so be warned! I've had to with sword, wisteria and java fern... wisteria died. the others lived :) if you quarantine for 2-3 or more weeks, the disease will die off. the thing about ich, velvet, etc, is it needs a host... no host, it eventually dies.

I've just cleaned my 29 with half and half hot water and vinegar. it's now ready for habitants, after its good tiring cleaning... rocks are next to be cleaned, and all fake plants and ornaments are air dried after basically being boiled
