Just got a great deal on a 75 gallon aquarium. Only $365 on eBay and it includes all kinds of goodies. The tank, stand, and canopy of course. Also a 9W UV, 300 W heater, Fluval 405, T5HO florescent lamp, 25' gravel vacuum, and Tetra Whisper 10-30 air pump. Whoo.... out of breath! Now that I have it, what do I do?!?! Just a couple of questions. What do you guys recommend for sterilizing the equipment? Is it okay to keep their cycle or start my own? The tank has been empty for about a week, so are there any BB left? I am also planning of painting the stand and canopy black. Any particular paint to use?
So i mixed up 19 parts water and 1 part bleach and dunked each plant in it, let it sit for a little bit, and moved them to another tub of water. Then to the non bleached tub I added prime. What else do i need to do? They still smell a little like bleach. What else do I need to do to make them safe for my tank?
