Hello, I'm not sure this is in the right area since FBT's aren't actually toads, but frogs, but I saw another FBT post, so I think I'm safe.

On to my question:

I just built a background for the 10 gal where I'm housing my firebelly toads, but now I'm upgrading them to a new tank. I'd like to use the tank they're currently in (the one w/ the great stuff, silicone, and peat moss background) for my fiancee's long tailed lizards, but I need to know how (or if it's needed or possible) to clean the old tank to free it of Firebelly toxins to make it safe for the lizards.

Again, the background was made by first spraying great stuff onto the glass, adding cork bark, then covering the foam with silicone with moss pressed into it.

I know I can reuse the gravel and plants and soil in their new enclosure, but I also want to reuse the tank.

Please let me know how to clean the tank for use for another species. THANK YOU for all information! Also, I'm posting this to a couple of forums, so if you're a multiple member and see this post again, don't feel like you have to reply more than once (if that is your inclination :).
Thanks!

So rinsing the background off with hot water and bleaching the glass is sufficient? (Obviously, the bleach is very diluted).

follow the direction on the bleach label as to dilution for disinfection. If you use too dilute of a solution then you might as well not use any at all.

Make sure all of the organics are cleaned out of the tank before bleaching it.
