Anacharis hates me and my bleach dips.

Hey all,

 

I bought a bundle of plants from an ebay seller and I did my bleach dip (2 minutes, 1 : 20 bleach).

 

Everything is fine except the anacharis has turned ghostly.  

 

Should I just pull it out or give it a chance to recover?

 

This isn't the first time I've had trouble sanitizing anacharis...

I would pull it out. I've had anacharis melt on me soon after a bleach dip. If I were to try them again, I would disinfect using potassium permanganate.

I hated bleaching anacharis in the past for it turned white sometimes. :(

I don't buy it too often but when I do I don't use bleach anymore.  I'd qt them for a couple of days and/or rinse and rinse for my betta in the past.

Same thing happened with me. Anacharis is notorious for being sensitive to bleach dips. Mine turned into mush afterwards and I unfortunately had to throw it away.

 

You could try separating it into a bucket to let it recover, although it may or may not be able to bounce back.
