Returning to Freshwater

Postby chefski » Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:43 pm

OK I broke down my freshwater tank about 18 months ago the substrate (mainly manado) was put in a tub still with water in it and left outside ever since (yes the wife is not impressed) o my question is this could it be washed thoroughly and re used or is it now a hazard to both myself and fish? (Being sort of stagnant should I just throw nad start again?

What is manado? When I Googled it I was told it is the capital city of a province in Indonesia. :?
If you can wash a substrate and it has no smell afterwards then it is probably OK to use.
