Someone spilled beer in my tank.
Thankfully it was a hospital tank I was setting up, so there were no fish, or even equipment, just the 10g it's self.
But, I didn't get to find out it happened, until a very foul oder sent me on the hunt of "wtf is that SMELL!?".
Then I looked under one of my tanks that I had a faux-satin table cloth over, and lo-and-behold, a guinness bottle floating in the water-only tank. I doubt much got into it, as the water wasn't discolored much at all, but very slimy, and extremly stinky, as one would expect from the beer fermenting in it..
It may not have been a lot of beer, but enough be like wtfstink.
I'm not sure WHY someone would put their practicly empty bottle in my hospital tank, which is hidden UNDER another tank.. But hey, drunks do weird things.
I don't even know why they were in my bedroom .. But whatever.
The main question is:
Right now it's soaking in hot water. Over. And over. And over.
Should I just throw it out and pick up a new 10g? Or can I save this?
I'm afraid of the chemicals and whatever the hell else they made in my 10g from it sitting there for at least a week before I noticed the smell, won't ever wash away and could harm my shrimp.
Btw I was planning on turning that hospital tank into a shrimp tank.. And I know shrimp are super sensitive.
So, Should I trash it? Or keep rinse and scrubbing?
