Update 4/21/13

I tore the tank down yesterday. I have been cleaning the tank 2 hours every saturday for months trying to get rid of the Synedra, and I'm tired of this scape. I will set the tank up again once I get new stuff such as a bigger filter, soil, sand, co2 reactor, plants driftwood. My main question is, how do I clean the empty ADA tank? The substrate and algae has stained the silicone.

here is the last FTS. That green thing is a DIY phosguard reactor I made. It has brought the phosphates down to 0.1 ppm vs 0.3 ppm




I needed a temporary tank for my fish so I scaped it. I put the clean plants in it for the fish to hide in, but I'm not expecting this to turn into anything.




How should I clean the empty ADA tank? The substrate and algae has stained the silicone. I heard that I should use a diluted bleach solution, and then vinegar to counter-act the bleach and remove hard water stains.

Tomorrow I'm going to seattle and I would like to get some nice wood for my tank. What stores are the best?
