honestly when i did it when i did the bleach dip for only 1:30 sec all the algae did not die. now i do about 2.5 min and all algae is gone. some plants to disengrate from this like vals. everything else i have from wisteria,cambomba, ludwigta, hc, hm, dwarf hairgrass, anubias, and glosso did not suffer much from the dip. i jus replant everythign and remove any leaves as they die daily for about 2 weeks.
