Agreed. Just a tip, if you want to clean established plants in your tank, I suggest you get a couple of shrimps if you don't have them already. They eat all the dead leaves and bits and eat the algae off the stemI usually wash them off really well and then spritz them with peroxide, then rinse again really well. I feel better, ‘just in case’ it may be carrying a parasite or something on it.
kbn, do you know of a shrimp that could live in a high ph tank? My tank is like 8.2 ph, 77.5 degrees. I would love to have shrimp.
