i want to disinfect my moss from snails but dont know if it is safe for the moss,is it?if so how much bleach do you put in lets say a 3 cup glass of moss
Ah yes, of course."19:1 dilution of bleach:water for disinfection purposes"
I'm pretty sure you got that backwards. Shouldn't that have been
"19:1 dilution of water:bleach for disinfection purposes"
I think you want 19 parts of water for each part of bleach. The other way around would really kill the moss.
I actually prefer carrots because they breakdown a lot slower than cucumbers and the snails (especially the baby ones) stick out like a sore thumb. I have a plant weight with a fishing line tied to it so the carrot is weighed down and i can retrieve it without having a big net in there. You will want to leave the carrot in there for awhile after all of the visible snails have been removed because there still might be eggs waiting to hatch.Let's say we use a cucumber. Put it in a fish net, put the fish net with the cucumber in the tank overnight. Pull the fishnet out before you turn the lights on. It will be crawling with snails
