Hello all -
Just joined this forum and hope someone can give me advice.
I had a nice 55 gal
going for about 2yrs with beautiful angelfish and a few tetras. Something went terribly wrong and I lost all my fish (I travel a lot for work, so was hard to doctor them and they all died eventually).
The tank just kinda sat around for a while, but now I miss my fish and want to get it going again.
As I'm not exactly sure why my poor fish got sick and died, I have removed all water, plastic plants, rocks, gravel, undergravel filters and cleaned all in very hot water.
Now i've got to clean the tank itself. I had thought I was not supposed to use any kind of detergent, but some of the gunk on the glass doesn't look like its going to come off with just hard water.
Any advice on how I should clean this up? I'm anxious to get everything clean and start cycling the tank.
