Effect of medications
I was planning to treat an outbreak of gill flukes in my Discus tank with
formaldehyde but I do not know if this is a safe medication to use in the
presence of plants. Could anyone tell me if formaldehyde is safe to use or
if it is not then recommend a treatment for gill flukes that they know is
safe for plants.
In case some plants are more sensitive than others to medications, these are
the plants that I have growing H.polysperma, H.corymbosa, Vall's, various
unidentified crypts and swords, Cabomba caroliniana (??), Limnophila
sessiliflora and Bacopa caroliniana
All the plants except the crypts, Cabomba and Limnophila produce bubbles of
O2 so these plants should be in reasonable health and capable (I hope) of
standing up to a small amount of "abuse"
