I bought a 250 gallon tank for my Dwarf Caiman. He is only about 10 inches right now. He is going to love it.
However Windex, and other cleaning products were used to clean that tank by the lady I bought it from. She had it outside and it was dirty, so she wanted to clean it up for whoever bought it... and used windex, and I think dish soap and somthing else. But yeh.... my question is, being such a big tank..I can't just bring it outside and start spraying it down. What would be a good method of making this tank safe for my Caiman and his fish?
Any ideas aprreciated. I was told by someone else to try using baking soda, as it would nutralize the cleaning agents. However I don't know anything about that, or how safe that would be either. Any help...
I got hte tank for $100....what steal. Even if I do have to figure out how to make it safe!
