hydrogen peroxide works too for killing bacteria, about 1 cup for every 15 gallons. Repeat everyday for 3 days in a row. You will have to mix the substrate to make sure that you get everything around it.

Then you will have to cycle the tank or 6-8 weeks.

With hydrogen peroxide, you don't get that bleach smell and is safer. However, it dissipates much faster than bleach. They are using 35% peroxide in aquaculture to treat quite a few things.

Any pharmacy store ....3% is what is available to the public. Do not have the bubbler turned on. Make sure that the tank is filled so no bubbles are made, otherwise you will lose the concentration of peroxide fast.

All the problems you've had with fishkeeping can be tied to poor nitrogen cycle management. Before you go messing around w/ chemicals you should start reading books on keeping large fish & how to best manage the nitrogen cycle for them, because you can go through all this & if you don't change your approach on how to keep fish, you will go right back to square one. 99.9% of fishkeeping problems can be traced back to poor water quality.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

X2. Lack of understanding the nitrogen cycle is without a doubt the cause of most problems, which leads to the inability to rectify a problem. Then you end up in a vicious circle of water issues.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.
