Well I washed everything in my tub with hot water, cleaned out gravel with water and ran the decor in boiled water for few minutes. The tank did go through a severe Ich outbreak right before i tore everything down. Never heard anything about adding a bit of vinegar, have you tried that personally?
I want to set everything up as new as possible. I dont care about keeping any good BB in anything because ill have a seeded media to start the new cycle. I want everything to be as clean as possible for me not to go into panic mode if i forget to clean something properly...
