So I got a 40 gal from someone off of fb market place but after I bought it they mention that their snake had passed away in it. I’m now a bit worried to put my lizard in it . I went to buy wipeout to disinfect the tank but everywhere was sold out so I got the flukers super scrub (picture of it at the end ) it’s says it cleans & deodorizes. Does anyone know if this product will work to disinfect the tank & hides from the previous owner? Thank you !

Cant say if the Flukers' Scrub is much good.. doubt it.

My advise is strip it down, put the stuff with hard surfaces on driveway and give them a good solid hose-down , let air dry , then give a good drenching spray with F10sc made up as instructed on the bottle ( I like 1:250 conc ) , let air dry , then they a good and sterile.

I have always used vinegar to clean the glass of my beardies enclosure, it is safe, dries quickly, and a natural acid so it disintegrates a lot of grim
