If i leave the sump as it is, and let it run in freshwater, will that affect my water or my fish. being corrosive and all, is there a chance bacteria will form there.
Go with just the vinegar and water. Skip the bleach for this project unless theres something in the sump you need to kill off.
What exactly is corrosive? What is the stain in the sump from? I was assuming it was like a skimmate film from the bubbles entering the inlet, or mineral deposits, or coraline. If thats the case, I wouldnt worry too much about it if you cant get it clean. If that stain is from an abnormal source, I would consider not using it at all.
sorriez, corrosive might have been a wrong use of word... the sump was used in a reef tank before... my guess is its mineral deposits, with dirt and sand...
