    Just received some java moss in the mail. Do I rinse it before putting in my tank? It's so fragile!

    Thing is you dont know what its carrying, theres been a big discussion about plants and quarantine some say two weeks others dont bother, myself I'd soake in tank water with fenbendazole or planaria zero that will kill anything on it, whatever you do I dont think putting it straight in is an option but it's down to you, the worst you'll get is probably snails and eggs but you never know there could be ich spores mixed in so a quarantine of a week at least
