Can you please give a detailed description of exactly what needs to take place for the sanitation / cleaning process of equipment and such between transfers? What will guarantee success? bleach? wiping everything down? rinsing? Does making sure everything is completely dry kill them? On my last transfer, I took everything to the kitchen sink, poured vinegar into the tank, then scrubbed all the silicone seams and the glass and rinsed with scolding hot water. Did the same with the heater, and all the other parts as well, taking the rubber suction cups off the plastic clips etc. then let it dry. At this point is it completely safe to re-use? Would rubbing alcohol kill everything upon contact? Just trying to figure out a safe repeatable routine. Using 10 gallon tanks and only have one spare / extra. I know its said that you need 2 of everything to prevent cross contamination. Trying to figure out when I'll know it's 100% safe to re-use. I guess my direct question is how long can a trophont live outside of water and what will kill it? Read in the posted video that the air drying part is the part that sterilizes. If I fail, I think this will be my weak link and somehow cross contaminate.
