I usually recommend to disinfect the tank with a bleach . And i never put it on the forum because i was thinking that people will say that i am wrong. Now i can do that recommendation here on the forum.
Thank you!

I wish I could use this method. The bad thing is the 2 different phs in my water. The water I use is straight well water with a ph of 8.6? but my heated water has softener salt in it so I don't use it. Lol though I did try to warm up water with hot water..didn't work. Now I have it to the point where I have a 8 gal rubbermaid tub that I put my water in and it sits over night bringing it to 73ish. When I had kritter keepers I would empty most of the water into a bucket and put the heater in there as well as my betta overnight as the water warmed up. Worked well lol

Sorry i meant i would use diluted bleach only to disinfect the tank from sick fish. But i think i recommend it to someone on this forum and people were so skeptical so i never recommend it again.
I did it a few times and i used 1 bleach to 10 water and i also put soap. And i washed like million times with water wiped it and washed it and let air dry and stay on the son for a few days. And i have betta in that tank now for about 2.5 years. So i think it the best disinfection from sich fish.
Just hot water will not kill all bacteria and fungus, well may be only if you boil it....
