Obviously doing something wrong
Prior to adding PMDD to the tank and converting from DIY CO2 to a CO2 cylinder, I decided to tear down my tank and remove all the algae I could both from the plants and the tank itself. After seeing the recipe for a bleach solution to kill algae off plants both here and in FAMA I decided to give it a try. I used 1 cup bleach (non-scented) in 19 cups of water and threw in 100 corkscrew val plants which have been propigating over the last 8 months. After three minutes the plants appeared devoid of chlorophyll, virtually a mass of residual plant goo. What did I do wrong here.
