Dips

Hey,

I got some java fern, and I can see pest in the ryizome.

I’ve put it into a quarantine jug for now. Is there anything I can do to rid them? I don’t want to introduce anything into my tank

I dipped mine into a 19:1 Water\Bleach mixture for 3 minutes. Snails and critters died, plant is growing great. Just rinse the plant VERY well after the dip.

I'm new to the hobby. What pests other than snails can be found on the rhizomes? Do you dip all new plants?

I totally agree with this. As long as your plants are healthy nothing will happen to them. All the critters will die off. Just be cautious with your measurements and thoroughly rinse your plants in clean fresh water.
