    I have a plastic hug that I just finished that had Arizona ice tea in should I go about cleaning it keep in mind my tap water gets ridiculously hot so I ran it through that a couple times...should I do that a bunch more times...then when I fill it should I add a few drops of prime and let it sit for a couple days and test it or will it be safe to add to an 8.8 and a 10 occasionally...thanks!!

    I would say if you rings it out well, it should be fine. I used to use a 2 gallon Hawaiian Punch jug for my smaller tanks.

    A good rule when adding dechlorinator is if you add it in after adding the water, you need to dose the entire tank. When adding it before, you only need to dose the amount your adding.

    I know milk jugs aren't good for water, and I wouldn't use anything that at some point contained acid-y drinks. Even asked my dad about it.

    I got my milk-size jug from the dollar store. It had drinking water in it. I'd recommend the jug, but not the drinking water.
