Default Help me KILL it...

This is Aegagropila linnaei, AKA Cladophora.



Underwater it is an awesome, green ball of goodness. It can also grow on wood.

So I though, 'Hey, lets try this stuff emmersed in my vivarium!'

BAD IDEA

This is emmersed Clado:





Brownish, Greenish, Grey puke. ITs ugly. Its spreading fast. And I cannot kill it.

Normally I would use glutaraldehyde to kill it in an aquarium. With sensitive frogs in the tank, I don't dare use a harsh chemical!

Help would be appreciated before my tank turns to fuzzy puke!!!
