I've read a couple things online about how to sanitize a tank and the decorations after a deceased fish, but I'm not sure if they are valid ways to go about doing so or not.
So my tank has been sitting empty for about a week now. I ran it and all the decorations under hot water and now have them in a container.
Somewhere I read that you can dilute bleach or vinegar to sanitize it all, and then sit it out in the sun for a couple of days.
There are 2 problems with that.
1: I live in an apartment, and I'm pretty sure my neighbors would steal my stuff.
2: It calls for sleet and snow tomorrow.
Are there any other ways to sanitize this stuff? Also, should the sand that was in the tank be throw out, or can I sanitize it too and reuse it?
