i have an ac jr running my qt tank that has gotten a horrible decease in it and i am going to tear teh tank down. how can i sanitize the probes without damaging them or drying them out? i was thinking 1/10 bleach solution or alcohol dip but i want to ask first?

I've not done it myself but I've read that a 10% bleach solution as you suggest, would work. I think the key is to only leave it immersed for a couple of minutes, no longer or damage to the probe could occur. Might want to drop Curt at Neptune a quick email and see what he says.
