I swish them in a bucket of aged tank water, and make sure to get healthy looking plants. They usually only carry snails, and if you're really worried qurantined in tank water. NO MEDICATIONS.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
