Do you pre-treat plants?
Just curious how many of you pre-treat plants chemically before you add them to your tank or not (to remove parasites, algae, etc.)? If so, what's your method?
Didn't know if I was a bad boy for not doing so. I just cut off the dead leaves and gently wiped off any algae with a pad.
I assume that chemically treating plants is not a guarantee to an algae (hair algae, etc.) free tank?
