one of the marina owners told me they use vinegar to clean out their minnow vats.

Paroxcide, water and a scrub brush. The paroxcide won't leave a residue and will not harm any fish that will be put in there in the future.

Don't use bleach, that's for sure....A buddy of mine did that and all his fish went belly up in the next tournament.

here is a tip for you...

You can use BTS to sanitize the livewell. Clean the well, Fill with water, turn the circ. pump and let run for 10 minutes. Drain, let tank dry and repeat circ. w/clean water and drain. It will impart our anti-microbial in BTS to the tank and plumbing. This will eliminate bacteria and all the other bad critters from taking up residence.

You can safely use bleach to clean out your livewells. Just rinse well and let it air out for 12 hours and everything will be fine.
