I have a 180g that being over run with cladophora, I can pull it off the manzanita branches, but it has totally overrun the anubias.

Sand substrate, Jungle Val , anubias nana, LED lighting
Angels, Pleco, Zebra loach, Acara,Red Head Tapajos

Pull the anubias and Jungle Val out or is there a way to recycle/ clean off the cladophora

Suggestions?

Thanks

Here is the tank in better times.

hydrogen peroxide should do the trick. Turn off the tank filter so that the water movement stops about 20 min. beforehand, then dose, leave for 10 min. or so then turn the pump back on.

If you're removing plants, you can just soak them in a bucket for a while, but not too long or it will hurt the plants as well as the clado.

From searching is dosing 3% H2O2 at 1ml/gal (1 teaspoon per 5 gallons) the right dose.
At that dose, Vals melted but anubias did ok

I was thinking of drawing down the water level with a large water change and dosing the whole bottom of the tank. Then just refill.

@ the 3% I didn't see any issues with fish deaths.

@ the 3% how long should I let it sit before I start refilling the tank
