Hi,

I started a new post so I could find out how to disinfect live plants before adding them to my tank--it has been going for a month and the goldfish are very happy.

:D:D:D:D:D:rolleyes:

You have different ways of cleaning plants of the nastys :lol

1. SNail a Cidewich has ":potassium permanganate " This will kill any snails.

Get a bowl with some water add enough that will make the water a pale Pinkish color. Then soak for 10-15 mins. Then rince with tap water.

2. If you cant find that you can use Bleach.

This way is alittle harder on delecate plants and root system. So you want to use 1 part bleach to 19 parts tap water. Then only dip them into the solution but dont get the roots. One table spoon of Bleach to one quart of water.

Hi Koko,

I wrote some names down that were suggested in my previous post:

Cobamba, Nana, Coffefolia, and tougher sword plants.

I am planning on going to Whitie's in Fresno, CA where Jenny works and getting her opinion too. She is my "goldfish guru" and that is where I got my current fish.

I am so busy this week but will do it in the next few days.

Nancy
