Milk Jugs?

No, not for keeping Betta's in~ Haha. Sorry if that was misleading.

I was curious if you could use 1 gallon milk jugs to hold aquarium water in? If so, how do you clean it out so that it'll hold the water safely without contaminating it with milk?

I buy water in gallon containers, empty the water, then fill it with aquarium water when I need to transport my boy with me. He needs special water sometimes when I travel, so I always make sure to have one with me.

I'd like to have some at my disposal, especially if I need to move him because we're in the military. I don't want to have to risk hotel water or water that I haven't had a chance to properly test.

I was just at the store, and of course, didn't think about getting water containers.

I just snagged an empty distilled water jug from work today for this same purpose!

I had two 2l pop bottles but now I only have one. I don't like to use them bc they're colder than my tanks' water but I think you need to allow the gasses evaporate out of the bottle by keeping the cover off for 24 hours (I punched some holes in the pop cover).

The 1gal empty milk jugs are what I use and have for years without any problems. All I do is rinse them out really well-then fill with water. I don't do anything special as far as cleaning or anything.

Yup, I just rinse them out really well until the tap water runs clear and then you're good to go. Just make sure to replace them every once in a while - I've found that after about 7-12 months of use mine tend to split open and make a mess.
