  1. ... I picked up a great sump yesterday tom use on my new tank. The issue is it has growths in it. Different growths. Scary growths. What's the best way to clean before I begin using it? 50/50 bleach solution with a powerhead inside for a few days? Vinegar? Blowtorch? Stand naked in front of the growths and scare them off?

    What kind of growths? Hard or floppy?

  3. More of the angry, itchy kind. I know you know what I mean. :)

    is that a glass or acrylic sump?
  5. Acrylic. Can't use acid.

  11. Or I could be wrong,,,
  12. It's soaking with bleach and a pump in there right now. How long should I leave it?

    Myself would leave it overnight and deal with it tomorrow, no pump is necessary in my opinion.
