Thank you! I wasn't sure what way was what. I don't have any instructions or anything, and I can't find any manual type things online.

Soap will kill everything in the water.

So I am guessing I will have to empty my tank and clean everything over again? I have had the filter on and the water has been running through it for 24 hours. I will be bummed if I have to do that but better than everything dying. I am wondering if the lady that sold it to me washed it with soap maybe. Thanks so much

yeah, to get it 100% clean itll have to be torn down and done over, if you like the decor the way it is, snap a pic and rescape it off the pic but you gotta get it all out. Hopefully someone can chime in on a bleach method but if not use the cheapest vinegar you can find and do not dilute it.

I could only find distilled white vinegar at Wally world. ****it! Lol. At least it was only running for a day. And my 10 is almost done. I am going to google some cleaning methods. Thanks again

thats what I use, wal mart doesnt spend the money to super refine it and its a little harsher then other store brands Ive noticed in both taste and smell. **** it cut away years of salt and marine algae from the 210 in a matter of hours.
