Best way to disinfect?

Recommended Posts

Whats the best way to disinfect things like water change hoses, old tanks, old plastic plants, and other tools used in and for aquariums to prevent cross contamination from diseased tanks to clean tanks?

I used bleach once and I would never do again. Making sure there is no residue left is tough work.


I am on the team hydrogen peroxide. Also drying should for work many problems but not all ofcourse.


Also, I should mention, I try to use a seperate equipment like nets, hose, etc for QT tanks

I also like hydrogen peroxide, cheap at the local chemist and effective.

Vinegar also works well, and the residual is so small that it'll be diluted to safe levels the next time you use the equipment in tank water.
