I bought a tank from craigslist

Postby Bmjo » Tue Aug 13, 2019 12:51 pm

I found a 4x2x2 tank with sliding glass doors on craigslist for $50 and it was probably the dirtiest tank I've ever seen but I bought it anyway and I cleaned it out with water and then bleached it and I was wondering should I go the extra step to get the veterinary reptile cleaner?

It probably wouldnt hurt to get some F 10 which is a veterinary cleaner / disinfectant --- it last a long time and I have some mixed up in a spray bottle for disinfecting when I need it - I have not had to use it very often but when you arent sure of whats been in there I would recommend it - not sure about the stuff your talking about but others on here might -- the F 10 I ordered on line

If you bleached it it would have killed anything that would have been there depending on the concentration of bleach you used.

I like using steam but if you want extra peace of mind you could use the vet disinfectant.

That was definitely a strong enough concentration to kill anything that would have been present :mrgreen:
