QT for rooted plants


QandD

I'm planning to dose my main tank at .3% salt for parasite issues, and I was wondering if it would be possible to save my rooted plants. I don't have a ton of them, but I'd like to save them all the same. However, it seems that throwing them in a bucket might not work, right? Does anyone have any tips about saving rooted plants when I have to treat the main tank? I have some broad-leafed swords, dwarf sagittaria, and Italian vals.

i would throw them in your qt while you treat the main tank ...hope this helps

 

Thanks--so they don't need a substrate? Would I have to put in additives to compensate? Dose ammonia?

Bucket is fine. You'll want some light too, so maybe place by a sunny window. If you have ferts on hand, dosing every couple of days when you change the water won't hurt. :)
