Muriatic Acid


Recommended Posts

Is the tank that corroded with coraline it requires Muriatic?


You must be talking more than just the tank, if not wouldn't filling it and water and a high concentration of vinegar soaking a few days be fine?


I only used Muriatic on my Tunzes that had years of coraline built up, nearly 1/8" thick

It's pretty encrusted. Plus a high concentration of vinegar in a 120g would get expensive. The acid was only $7.


To my understanding you fill a squirt bottle with water, pour in some acid, spray away, let sit for 5 minutes and then hose away.


Sound reasonable enough. But I like to check with you all first on things I have never used.

Grocery outlet sells 1gal jugs of distilled vinegar for 2 bucks.


so to do a 50/50 it would only cost me $120 and take a few days.


I did the acid bath tonight. Was very easy and worked like a charm. I will try to get the new bulheads on Monday, and also pick out a stain for the stand. Getting closer everyday :D
