I posted this tonight on my "worms" thread - but in case that's worn out & no one's looking, I'm making a new thread.
So. I bought a plant from a seller and it's being shipped tomorrow. I'd like to keep the plant because it looks cool, but since I've now learned what planaria looks like, I realize the pics of his tank are totally covered in tons of planaria. I mean, it looks like a blizzard. Can I put the plant in a concentrated dewormer solution & soak it for a few days, or use bleach (or both?)? Or should I toss the plant. The dang dewormer is so expensive, I don't want to keep treating my fish tank if you don't think I can kill the planaria prior to putting it in the tank. (the dewormer costs twice what the plant did! I have one packet left)
I figure I can start with a bleach dip (I don't know if it effects planaria), move onto the concentrated dewormer, and watch the plant for a few days. It's a bid sword, and I'll have to buy a container (bucket) that it'll fit in.
Whatya think? Waste of time/money/dewormer or not?

That's more expensive than the dewormer! lol
I just sent him a pm asking him to keep the plant. He had a very low price on it, so I'm not out hardly anything. It's cheaper than treating the plant...I just hope he sees it before he ships. Perhaps someone else will want it.

Ok, I guess I'm so freaked out ny the planaria in my tank, that I'm seeing it everywhere. Apparently what I thought where worms are the bubbles from his filter - lol
