Cleaning PLants
 
I just lost all fish to some kind of either bacteria or fungus in my tank. How can i safely clean my plants and start a new aquarium cycle, so there wont be infection?

Without knowing exactly what killed the fish, this is difficult to answer. Have you no idea at all about the problem?

h2o2 dip the plants and bleach the tank with the plants OUT... rinse everything down and fill with new water

all i know is it kills in less than 24 hours... there is white fuzzy growths and what looks like fin rot

what is h2o2? and how do you do the dip?

hydrogen peroxide, get a bowl of it and dip the plants then rinse them off under the tap afterwards. it will stress the plants but kill everything except snail eggs and some algae.

H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide, usually available as a 3% solution.. usually you can find it in the first aid section in the supermarket.
