Hi all!
I am starting up a 29g (here's a link the build) and was wondering if I could dip all aquarium plants (Fore, mid, and background) in an Alum dip. If so how long and what concentration? Girl talks fish says 1 tablespoon/gallon for 2 days. Thanks!

I use alum for all my plants though potassium permanganate might be a more popular choice. I use maybe 1.5 teaspoons/gallon for 3 days, rinsing really well before and after.
