Would u guys just completely replace all of the bulkheads? Previous owner just cut the hoses so there's still gunk all over the threads and whatnot.. the middle one im already replacing bc I snapped the threads on the inside

A mix of plain bleach and water 1:1 should clean it right up. Just rinse it out with fresh water after and it should be fine. There's certainly nothing wrong with replacing anything that looks suspicious.

Well I can't actually "rinse" out the tank... I'm in an apartment remember? Not like I can take it out back and rinse it out and dump it lol so I don't think using chemicals that r harmful r goin to be a good idea

I thought it was the overflow that was dirty? What I've done in the past is put a bucket under the overflow pipe, spray off the grime with a mix of bleach and water, wipe it all down, then give it a rinse. The water falls into the bucket and all is good. Bleach is not harmful to use when cleaning out a tank as long as you rinse it and let it dry out for a couple of days. The chlorine will be all gone. I understand you can't do the whole tank outside but you could wipe it down with paper towels after spraying it with bleach.

People have been doing exactly this for decades. Nothing harmful about it. Ask around.
