Disifecting tanks?

Hi, one of my fish just died of Columnarisand I wanted to know how you disinfect the tank for another fish, using vinegar. I actually dont have bleach in my home. I already washed everything in boiling water. Thanks for any help!

Just use a mixture of vinegar - 1 part vinegar to 1 part water. Wash well and then rinse it very well. No idea what your weather is like there currently but if you have sun, leave the tank in the sun for a day or two as well - sunlight is a brilliant way to kill off the last few things :D

What kind of vinegar? Like white, or apple cider, or whatever

White distilled is what I use. You can get a huge jug of it at walmart for mega cheap.
