Rinsed it for half an hour solid (my poor back!) and put it back in the tank which had been wiped down with vinegar, then rinsed. Neither smell nor cloudiness when I sift the sand. Going to leave it with filter, bubbles, heater and substrate. Also boiled DW and set it on a shelf to dry out. No idea what to do. Maybe a breeding trio of class N Endlers? Some moss balls?
Do you know what happened to the tank?

You could do a trio of Endlers, even a trio of scarlet badis would work in that size tank. School of micro rasboras. Shrimp.

Grass had grown up 3/4 the height of the tank. Gave it a trim. Gave the cories back as they were scaring and running over the smaller fish. Will finish skimming the cut grass later. I really need to set up a trimming siphon.

Can't remember where I saw it, but someone had connected a waterproof trimmer (beard trimmer?) to s siphon hose. Essentially an underwater flo-bee.

Mebid, I didn't know you had an engineer goby. Is it doing well? I love them and I owned one for a while and he survived everything until I gave him to my friend and they noticed he was acting funny but did nothing and he ended up because he was doing so poorly the serpent star was able to grab him and take a chunk out of his tail.

Its doing great, just about done transitioning from the juvenile color pattern to the adult. It worried me for a little bit because it was out of its cave when the lights were on and was just sitting around but hes fine now.

Added some Pogo. Stellatus Broadleaf that I got from foster53 to my 75 gallon.

Also rescaped my 20 gallon with a few stems of the Pogo. and some of the extras he threw in (Rotala Ramsoir 'Sunset', Limmophila Balem, and Pogo Narrow Leaf.) on top of the crypts and misc stems I had in there.. The 20 gallon is now all real plants as I had enough to now pull out the few fake plants I had in there. Its clearing up now as I kicked up a BUNCH of stuff while I was moving everything around.

They are awesome fish, just remember to feed him more as an adult, a lot of people who have owned them don't feed them enough and they starve many captive specimens don't survive to reach mature adulthood
