Okay so here is the story. i got a 5 gallon tank from my friend. She used to keep a terrarium for snails in it. So when she gave it to me she said she washed it... I grimaced and asked if she use soap to which she replied " Yeah but only a tiny bit of dawn and I rinsed it really well. It should be fine "
So I did some Google searching about getting all the soap out of tanks and I couldn't find a conclusive sure fire way.. Now, before you just tell me to go out and buy a new one.. i am tight on budget and would really love to be able to use this one..
So I heard that a vinegar bath then rinsing it beyond belief would do the trick. But I don't want to chance it.
has anyone dealt with this before? Do you know of ways to get all the soap out of the tank? .. If cant be a be all end all.. I mean lots of people have probably made the mistake and I don't think they would throw away a good tank ..
Is there a good way to test if the tank is safe after all this rinsing.. I dont want to chance putting my fish in there if I am not 100% sure..
