Yesterday I picked up a 29 gallon tank with filter, hood, light, air pump and bubbler (meh) some gravel, and decorations, two out of the three of which probably won't be used....same goes for the plastic plants. Oh well, not like I bought the tank for the decorations.
ANYWAY. This tank is second-hand, bought it off a young man who had just moved into an apartment and had no space for it. He was a bit clueless about fish (seriously, he tried to keep African Cichlids with tropical community fish in a pretty much barren tank, no heater O.O) but I got out of him that it has always been freshwater, kept tetras and cichlids, (okay first he said chinchillas xP But I figured it out).
Is there anything special I should do to clean it out? I plan on doing a bleach treatment on the tank, gravel, dec, etc. (I have a habit of making sure anything I own is available for use at any time) before setting it up and mixing the remainder (between 1/3 and 1/2 a bag) of my Flourite by Seachem substrate with the gravel to use as a base. The tank will in a few months be used as the growout for my spawn, but I want to within a month or two have it started on a cycle and get it planted.
