Tank cleaning during coccidia

Postby wahm » Wed Mar 21, 2012 5:57 pm


Venom has Coccidia and is being treated. We cleaned his tank and I am wondering about his back wall. It is made of styrofoam. How can this be cleaned? My husband thinks it needs to be replaced. Does this need to stay out of his tank until he is cleared of the parasites?

Thanks for your help.

coccidia is transferd from his feces. i dont think hes gotten poop on his back wall :) just make sure every where he goes has been sterilized. i use a bleach solution. very diluted you only need a little to kill coccidia. and after every poop pick it up as soon as possible and clean the area and where he walks incase he dragged it with bleach solution again. just try to make sure he doesnt injest his poop.
