When we were hit by a hurricane, my tanks went without power for around 10 days. This included my very heavily planted and heavily stocked 75g tank. I only lost 1 fish. I was able to manage by using...

You might want to contact whomever shipped you the fish so they can treat the fish at their end. Otherwise, they will just spread the louse to people everywhere.

Okay, that helps. Thanks for the list. I may give it a try on some of my trimmings that I'm going to discard just to see how they do. Since I've waged full war on MTSnails, I really would like to...

I'm pretty sure it does. I've used black waterfall foam for ponds in a number of applications, and it sticks to everything I've tried it on so far. The best thing is since it's intended to be used...

Bah! LOL! Okay, I'll give a little. It depends on how deeply the BBA has rooted into the leaf. If the BBA just started on the plant a few days ago and is only on the outer edges, then hit the thing...

It's algae. I'd like to suggest that it's diatoms, but diatoms don't normally pick one plant while leaving others around it diatom free. There also appears to be a tiny bit of fuzz going on.

Yes, it can affect the fish if there's enough of it in the tank. That usually won't happen if the person isn't neglecting the tank. If you have BGA in a tank, you should take steps to get rid of it....

Jaime, what plants are you soaking? Is it mainly things like java fern, Anubias, Bacopa, Crypts, and things along those lines?

Okay, HD and I will disagree here. If the plant is a fast growing stem, then, sure, trim off the leaves. But if it's a slow growing anubias, I think it's worth saving the leaves. All it takes is a...

If it is in fact plastic, then I'd go for it. What's the worst that can happen—you end up not liking the color? That's already the case now!

Okay, that's it. You absolutely MUST get this tank started! I can't wait to see this! Run, don't walk, and get a 75g tank right now. Don't come back home without one! :hihi:

This would be my choice for anything that can be seen. I do this regularly with my drop checkers and the section cups that come with them. Makes everything sparkling clean and pearly white.

Then we'll need a better picture to be able to identify it. There are too many plants with that basic structure to determine which one it is without getting a clear look at the leaves.

I favor hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) over bleach. It's safer for the plants and deadly for BBA.

It's controversial as to how much surface agitation affects CO2 outgassing. When you get a drop checker,...

Fantastic picture! So unfortunate it's harmful and has to be killed. I hope that was the only one and the fish are okay.
