Personally, I like using bleach, that way I know there isn't a single chance of anything nasty clinging to my stuff, and the solutin is only a little bit of bleach- only 5 to 20 % bleach the rest water, though the precents are depending on what I'm trying to clean and what's happened to it.

So the times you have used bleach you have has not issues with your fish? Have you cleaned nets with it?

i would say if you do bleach it, rinse it very well with hot water and make sure its totally dry before you put it in the tank.

I've used bleach a lot lately with my fish equipment (syphon bucket and even the net), and I'm yet to have a problem. Just make sure you rinse really, really well, and that there isn't any lingering bleach smell, and that you let it fully dry before the next use.

If you don't want to constantly be bleaching nets, I'd get a cup for each betta that you can use to scoop up your bettas in, cupping bettas can be easy and actually less stressful on bettas IMO.

I trained my fish to swim into the cup. During his breakfast or dinner for a few days, i'd hold the cup ready to scoop and drop a pellet in. Eventally once he swam in, I scooped him up and fed the other two pellets.

I've used bleach on jars, cups, tanks, nets, heaters, plastic plants, plastic decor. I've never had a death as a result of bleach use.
