I recently purchased some Malawa shrimp to go in the 2.5 Mini Bow with Finch the Betta.
After they were shipped, the seller told me his tank had planaria. Said all I had to do was discard the plants in the shipping bag with the shrimp and all would be well.
Despite his assurances that there's nothing to worry about, I do. Will discarding the plants really take care of the planaria? Even though these shrimp will stay in the 2.5 and not join the others in my 20, I don't want it contaminated.
Will they bum a ride with Finch when it's his turn in the "big tank?"
Any help appreciated.
