    As some may know I have had many losses and have had to overhaul my tank so to speak well twice now.

    In doing so I have uprooted some hygrophilia and would like to put this in Mordin's tank as he loves his plants but I don't want to put him in harms way as its coming from another tank so I have a couple of questions

    How to quarantine the plants and keep them healthy I don't have a spare tank

    How long should I quarantine for

    I have fertilisers to hand and spare gravel and stuff just not a tank.

    I would like to quarantine some Christmas moss too

    Thank you in advance and for reading

    Thank you Ken I will take a look :)

    Edit - do you think rinsing them well would be ok?
