Hi everybody! I am currently redoing several tanks right now and have several nice plants that need to find new homes in other tanks. -However- since some mistakes were made (i.e. buying swap-meet plants with snail eggs, and rehoming freshwater clams from local pond with planeria, and not quarantining properly for either), I have to put the plants through a decontamination process before I can trust them to go into my 30gal tank.
The good news: I put them in a small rubbermaid bin with a few inches of water and a little bit of Coppersafe to kill off invertibrates. (I measured off 2 or 3 threads on the little screw cap). Plants marinated for over a day. Everything's dead, right? Yay!
The bad news: when I went to pull plants out, a giant adult ramshorn snail didn't seem to care that I had poured a dose of snail poison in his container :icon_mad:
Plants are currently quarantined in an unused fish tank with some water and a light, and have been for ~1 week now (no sign of hatched snail eggs, but I can't afford to cross contaminate my good tanks).
So here's my question: what dosage of coppersafe should I use to kill off all snails and eggs, and for how long should I let the plants soak?
When they are safe, plants will be going into a 30gal planted tank with amano shrimp and nerite snails, so they will be rinsed obsessively under water.
