Hello everyone...this is my very first post... I had a very bad issue with green spot algae on a rather large anubia and java fern (too much lighting).... Being impatient, I remove these effective plants from the tank and did a two minute dip in bleach heavily diluted in water (avoiding wetting the rhizome)...almost instant results...and no apparent negative effectives on the thick leaved anubia.... Just my two cents....since placing in a dimmer area, no problems at all since.... By the way, wonderful website!!!
