I can remember trying to clean questionable gravel once. Got some nasty cuts from glass from a heater that had broken who knows when. The questionable bucket makes me worry as well. Substrate isn't expensive.
Just go buy some pool filter sand or play sand. I've even used tube sand with my crayfish (1" in a 55g tank cost me $5).Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?
