Re: [APD] Sulfa antibiotics and plants
If one was faced with needing to use a chemical that would be detrimental to
the plants in order to effectively treat a problem with the fish, why not
remove the plants?
Almost all of the plants in my tanks were originally shipped to me usually
in plastic bags with little or no water ( just enough to keep damp) for at
least 2 days sometimes as long as 7 days. All survived.
If i didn't have a quarantine tank, or even a plastic tub, i would put them
into black unscented plastic leaf bags, close tightly with a little water, and
treat the tank. If i needed to treat for more than 5-7 days i would go to
Home Depot and buy a tub. Lot cheaper than replacing the plants and makes a
great temporary "tank" if you ever need one
Are there common things we treat fish for that would attach to the plants
and SURVIVE that long in a bag? Say a quick Hydrogen Peroxide rinse before
adding back to the tank??
what am i missing here?? comments??
