Two is best just in case one fails

I have decided to go with 2 200w heaters. This will be my first purchase for my tank. And it begins!

So to update my progress I just got a 5 stage Rodi unit and I just picked up a 40 Breeder Tank for $80 so I can make a DIY sump. Sorry for the VERY SLOW progress. Next step is to DIY a cabinet for the main display.

I bought the 40 off of Craigslist and was wondering how to properly clean it. I don't wanna use windex just to be safe. The tank was used to raise coy fish.

White vinegar and a razor blade has worked well for me.

Is there any other way besides the use of vinegar? The smells of it makes me throw up.

LOL some people use a weak solution of bleach and rinse, rinse and rinse some more until there is no bleachy smell left but I haven't been willing to try it myself.

Maybe someone else will have another idea. Good luck!

For the sump I was wondering if. 220 thick acrylic would be OK for the baffles?
