Hey there, did a search didn't really find anything.
Know I'm sposta use vinegar my question is how do I get into the bottom chambers?
This is a used tank and apparently sat in buddies garage for 6 months.
Anyone that's done this, any advise or suggestions would be awesome thanks.

Just get a couple of gallons of regular america's choice vinegar. Maybe like 3-5 gallons, then fill it with warm water. Run the tank overnight and it'll be just like new.

Thanks for the replies, running it with vinager is a awesome idea.

On a new front I just realized my skimmer and Stevie t media basket go in the same chamber ><
I don't think I can return either of those things, I even got the upgrade cup for the skimmer.. Now I gotta spend money on another skimmer (hob maybe) :(

I ran a tunze 9002 on my 34 gallon solana. In my opinion was a waste so I sold it. Did about 10 gallon water changes a week and dosed prodibio. Did enough for me.
