What and how to clean a second hand tank with??? #1
Please could someone be so kind to share their experiances of what to clean a second hand aquarium with?

I'm thinking a new sponge pad and just scrub away with milton sterilizing fluid??? And rinse thoroughly?

Your thoughts greatly apriciated! The tank is an aqua one 4ft 300l.. Going to be an aquascape with a few waterfalls!! Yay!!

Re: ANYONE REMEMBER ME? #2
My danio's are probably nearly 4 years old roughly now.. no idea how long they will live for!

I've been somewhat slack with the water changes but no worse than a 20% change, fortnightly.

But I've kept the tests up just in case and the PH has always remained consistent as I live in hard water area the nitrates have always been too high!.. so I had a polanzzi filter installed in the loft, thanks to FK members advise and I've kept up with the cartridge changes so my tanks have ticked over nicely.

But I've a bit of dark green, that's build up on the back of the glass, from my lack of using my algae magnet and a bloom of black dome shaped algae on my wood in several places.
I've also got this layer of dead plant matter and crypts growing everywhere and java ferns growing off the side of the glass and anywhere they can find! Gold snails have taken hold a little too much!

do I dare post photos! lol

ANYONE REMEMBER ME? #5
ITS ME!! Not entirely sure if anyone remembers me?? well its been 3 years nearly since I last logged on!

ive still got the same fishy's.. just my zebra dainos and planted tank.

but ive been naughty..my tanks have suffered a serious lack of tlc.. co2s off on my planted tank, moss has grown wild, crypts looking weedy even the basics don't get done.. I wont lie..

so guilt has brought me here!

so someone kick me into gear..i need my passion back!! plus a few more hours in the day would be nice
