    How do you safely sanitize different types of aquarium equipment? When or how often should you do so? I know that sharing equipment like buckets and siphons between tanks is not advised, and many people have dedicated equipment for each tank. But if you don't, how do you sanitize between uses...

    I have a ten gallon tank which I bought yesterday for a new betta who died this morning. I would like to be able to use this tank for fish later, but I'd like to be sure it's clean in case what killed my little guy was something contagious. He was bought at Petco and the water in his cup...

    Sorry for the all-caps, but I need to ensure my tank is safely sanitized. I've sprayed it down with vinegar water (1/2 vinegar 1/2 water roughly) and will rinse it after allowing it to dry overnight. The current resident of that tank died after developing Dropsy, and I want to ensure that...

I'm a little scared about the bleach (would there be any way to test that I got rid of it all?), but if it...

    My 2-year old Betta died this morning from Dropsy. I had been treating with Maracyn, Maracyn 2, epsom salt and water changes but I guess it was just his time. I have another Betta, in an adjacent tank, and would very much to have 2 Bettas again. So my question is whether or not I can reuse the...

    So I went on vacation and asked a friend to take care of my beta and snail and I came home to a dead snail. D: I'm not exactly sure what to do with the remains or how to clean the tank. Should I empty the water? Should I rinse it? Should I vacuum the gravel?
