Intruders in plants
Hello all, im new to this site so I hope ive posted this in the correct place.
I have a 'Shrimp only' tank and it has an increasing population of what i believe to be Seed Shrimp and some sort of small copepods.
I want to set up another tank for these shrimp and the established plants (java moss, riccia sp. etc) but id like to get rid of all the other creatures that plague the tank.
Is there any reccommended way i can do this without harming the shrimp? In particular i want to clean the plants as this is where most of them hide, and there are now alot.
I definitely dont want to do a bleach-dip, but can i soak the plants in salt water or RO water to kill of the invaders, and if so, how long for?
Any help would be much appreciated.
