I found 10g by the dumpster!

Yay me! This thing is in great condition just needed a good cleanin which i just did. AGA hood 15W bulb, eheim heater, tetra 20 filter...all working! Well the heater is on let's see what the temp is in the AM! Washed everything thoroughly w/hot water of course....tomorrow is the true test. DOES IT HOLD WATER! LOL

Plus a friend of the family will soon be giving me their 50g setup!!

+1

Dilute the bleach to a 20% solution and give every cm a good scrubbing, then rinse, rinse and rinse 2 more times.

Bleach will work well... use a 3X dose of dechlorinator in the tank on the final rinse to make sure you neutralize all of it.

Cool! Thanks again for all the advice. One more question the tetra20 filter...is that too strong for platys or swordtail's to be kept in the 10 g? Could I just baffle the filter? Or maybe this will be my zebra danio breeding tank? So many choices! Help...lol so much for one more question!

IMO a 10 gallon is too small for any of those choices (swordtail, platy, zebra danio)
