Hi all,
As stated, I have just sourced a 1000L (264G) water change drum that originally contained molasses. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these and whether or not they are able to be cleaned well enough to be used for ageing aquarium water?

If they can be cleaned well enough, how should I do it?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Shane

I can't think of anything in molasses that would be toxic, but sugar in the water migh be an issue. I know a lot of people say never use any soap when cleaning these types of things, but as long as you rinse very thoroughly, its fine. I would use hot water and a very small amount of dish soap. If there is any actual residue, fill up the tank with warm (or hot) water and the bit of soap and let it soften up. Then dupm it out and rinse very thoroughly. You know you got it all out if after the rinsing, it doesn't smell like molasses anymore inside, just clean.
