It is a very good idea as a PRECAUTION for thread algae. A
few months ago I received some plants which had some kind of
branched alga stuck to them. I removed what I could see and
used the bleach method. Put them in a tank immediately
after. No thread algae has developed since.
I had the same type of red(?) algae causing a couple of
years ago and I could only get rid of it with copper, with
its obvious side effects. Even the 3 day blackout means 3
days without enjoying the tank(s). : )
So why introduce a problem and cure (or try to) when you can
get rid of it before it happens.
So, thank you Paul for saving me more problems.
