How to clean java moss of worms

Shrimpnoob97

Picked up a large piece of java moss from the roof. Would be great for carpeting. I rinsed it out and quarantined it. The next day I noticed some worms, looks like planaria. I tried a salt dip and hydrogen peroxide dip. Not sure if they did anything as the “test” worms did not die in their beakers.

any tips on how to rid these worms before introducing the java moss would be appreciated.

current tank is a planted community tank with small tetras, guppies and shrimp.

What is the roof? Like a house roof?

Building roof, 300’ up. Not really exposed to much I would think

I don’t believe you have java moss. Any pictures?

I’m currently drying it to see if that may work.

Unless you live in south east Asia, I highly doubt that is actual java moss. Even then seems unlikely that it would occur on a roof.

Definitely is a moss of sorts. If you could get a proper ID of the moss you may be able to find out if it can be grown submerged.

You can treat your moss with dogs de-wormer Panacur, if you decide to use it in fish tank.

is there a method on how to use panacur to treat the moss? A dip for 10 mins? Is there a ratio?
