I have a 30 gallon tank which i have been using for 6 yrs but all tha fish keep dying:(

i just bought a new filter for it called "topfin 30"

and a new undergravel system to replace the old one

i have two bubble wands

all tha fish had fungus and i treated them wit med but only two lived, so i transfered them into my 20 gallon tank

how do i clean this tank? i kno u cant use soap LOL

but how can i total clean it out sterilize it?

i read in couple of the post here that vinegar does sumthing?

i will be rinsing all tha rocks

wut else do i have to do?

The above posters are correct that is what I have done in the past.

My concern, why the underground filter? Gf and those don't do well with those. As they root thru the bottom they disturb toxins that can hurt them when those filters are used.

How big is your tank? Do you need more filtration than the Topfin is giving? You could go with another topfin or a bigger filter and take back the UGF. Just my opinion.
