I am having such a great day ! I went on craigslist to find someone giving away a 75 gal tank. Mint condition. Solid wood stand. Eheim 2215 canister filter. lights heaters the works !! Add that to the kids have shed all their coughs and colds and you can see why I am on cloud 9.

The guy mentioned that he had piranha in this tank and that they had gotten sick. didn't specify. What should I do to sterilize the equipment before I switch my chiclids from my 55 gal?

boil or bleach bath all the bio media...

replace mechanical media.

I personally would do a bleach wipe down on the inside of the tank.

After the bleach, rinse everything REAL well...and use dechlorinator to help get all the bleach out of the media and tank.

If you smell bleach, keep rinsing...

Then I'd fill and run the tank without decor or substrate for a few days to let any remaining bleach evaporate.

Nice find...congrats!
