Rinsing new gravel, possible mistake?
Hey everyone, so I just got a new tank (my third or 4th tank so far), and was rinsing out some new gravel yesterday but I realized that I might have made an error. When I rinsed the gravel, I stupidly grabbed a bucket from my garage and not my "official" bucket that I have only used for aquarium needs. I'm almost positive that I have used this bucket in the past transporting fish without problems, and I'm almost sure that this bucket hasn't been used with any chemicals but I'm not positive. I did rinse out the bucket thoroughly before putting the new gravel in it.
So my question is, could I have screwed up the gravel and made it unsafe? IF there's a chance that this bucket has had soap or anything in it in the past, it would have been a long time ago maybe a year ago. But would this be a problem? Please let me know, I'm so mad at myself right now for not using my aquarium bucket, and I don't want to hurt any of my fish when I put them into this new tank. Thanks for the help
