[APD] Plant quarantine? and intro...
Hi...been lurking for awhile...don't think i've posted yet...
I better introduce myself, eh? OK here's the full poop:
I have a 30g low/wide breeder tank with 6 4-6" goldfish and a 6" pleco... 10g with 6 1.5" platys... 2g with 6 corys (bought today for $3 total!...under quarantine for a week or two)...+ a 1.5 g growing many ramshorn snails.
GF 30g has 4 Anubias (2 nana, 2 ?), and 3 nice lace java ferns...lighting is 2 36" 30w tubes, slightly overdriven by an electronic 48" shoplight ballast. 10 g has a few 1-2" remnants of jungle val that got trashed by pond snails ( all gone now) and then by fish meds. doing fine now, but small! 1 15W tube for lighting...(yes I know it may need more )
I have various plants (crypts, wisteria, swords, java moss, etc) enroute from mikeswetpets (ebay). I understand some recommend a soak in diluted bleach to kill any nasties before introducing into tanks. I have used that successfully before to mitigate algae on plants. I have plenty of 4g tall buckets...was thinking of tossing an airstone in one and leaving the plants for a week to see if anything "crawls out".
