Bleach?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Not sure if this belongs here or not, sorry.

This weekend I am getting one or two new babies. My question is this: The two tanks I am setting up are used. Is there anything on God's green earth that would survive a bleach bath? I have wiped the one in a 10:1 water to bleach solution and then dried it. Could anything have survived this? Should I let the bleach sit on the tank longer? And do I need to rinse the tank, or is drying it sufficient? All the furniture for the new tanks has had a loong bleach soak, a rinse, and dried overnight, so I think that is alright.

Sorry, I want everything to be PERFECT.

Apparently coccidia can survive bleach. Do you have a hand steamer? That is what I use and a lot of others on here do to.... there isnt much that can withstand steam.

I do not have a steamer. Would it work if I poured boiling water in the tank? or would that crack the tank? =/
