How to truly avoid snails and algae in a tranfer of cuttings?
I've got me some alum powder from the grocery store and I'd like to transfer cuttings from one tank to another, avoiding green hair algae and snails.
I suspect that I'll rinse the cuttings, then soak them in a bucket for a day or two, before planting them. How should I prepare the bucket? Should I use any peroxide, or something, in another bucket? I need to be sure not to get any eggs, right? The alum wont kill them, will it? I think there's detritus worms too.
