i used to have a 10 gallon tank with flourite that i took apart a couple months ago. I left the tank with the flourite outside in my back yard. Now i have a 20 gallon and want to use the flourite, is it safe to just rinse it and put it in, or should i boil it?

thanks

Welcome to APC!

I would probably rinse it well with water and then let it dry out before using it in the aquarium. Boiling would kill any noxious bacteria that may have grown during the time outside. I wouldn't be too concerned about anything else as it would probably be fish food anyways.

Good luck and be sure to let us know how it goes.

Personally, I would rinse it and rinse it goood. Dont' worry about boiling it.
