P.s. Thanks for not yelling at me

I didn't wanna put you on the spot or anything, I'm just deathly afraid of killing my tank and figured there'd have to be a better way that would rest my mind. lol

If what youre doing works i see no reason to stop.

theres nothign really wrong with bleach, yeah it contains chlorine but its easy to rinse off.

alot of peopel use bleach to wash out their empty tanks or even rinse of some dry rock or dried out live rock

Just call me paranoid LOL. I'll try the washing machine thing and see how they come out. If they are still too dirty I'll bleach em and rinse em and use prime too. That should make me feel safer.

Esp if your putting it in a bucket w/ some prime. Quick rinse after that and no prime in your tank either.

Shopping wasn't a total failure today. I picked up 2 skunk cleaning shrimp and some stuff for the pico.

Also got 2 more filter socks so I can try to rotate them and keep them clean.

Unfortunately my baby blue caribbean tang isn't coming in til tomorrow so I guess I gotta make another trip. LOL

not all of them, but it also all depends on the fish themselves
