Lol yeah my bad, my first post . Generally for freshwater communicable diseases a bath in a hypo saline solution I assume would kill anything. I always hated the blue stuff.

I rinse with water, but every tank has a set of nets. For less than $2 per net it's not worth the risk and I don't worry about a dip.

Every once and a while I do a diluted bleach dip and then a soak in diluted prime to sterilize them.

Anything you should be worried about transferring usually wont show up for a little bit. Something could take eight months to show up in your tank. Are you going to know it was the net you double dipped?

Hypo saline? How would that kill anything? Do you mean hyper saline?

Don't know the ingredients, but it's called net safe or something similar.
