Default How do you Clean and Sterilize a Tall Exo-terra?

Hey, I had some unfortunate events happen in my Exo-terra (death of 3 frogs )

How would you recommend that I should clean and sterilize it? I have the background which I coated in Peat-moss and animal-safe silicone (as recommended here).

I plan to get some new frogs soon to replace the frogs from the sad event, and want to make sure my tank is a healthy and ready place for them.

Please help me out with this! Thanks!!!

I'm pretty sure you can clean it with vinegar

Did you have a necropsy done on one of the frogs to see why they died?

If you dont know why they died, I suggest tearing the whole tank apart and starting over. You can clean the empty tank with a 10 to 1 solution of water and bleach. 10 parts water, 1 part bleach.
