Well I've been looking for java moss for a while down in Florida and finally found some at a pet shop down here. What I didn't realize when I posed my question to the staff about them carrying it, is that it came from one of their fish tanks! I figured, ahhh, what the heck, I can disinfect it, etc. They gave me a HUGE amount for $5, so ya....
Anyway, I did the whole bleach thing, around 20/1 water to bleach. I was going to attempt to leave it for over 2 min, but around the one minute mark or just over, the color started getting a little dull and parts started to brown so I took it out and gave it a rinse. It seems to be doing ok, but time will tell. Will this take care of ick or anything else that could harm my new Thailand imports?! I don't want to chance it!
I am going to give it a few rinses, and then quarantine it for 72 hours. Any other suggestions?
Also, before I did this, I took out 4 snails from the bunch, I didn't want to kill any of them. I didn't find anymore. They are now in a little container while I try to figure out what to do with them! I have been trying to identify them online but no luck. They are small, brown with three parts to their shell (maybe four) but the middle part is lighter than the others, if that makes any sense. I can get a picture of them later today, but if anyone knows anything or can help me identify, that would be great!
Thanks in advance:D
