    I got some pellia plant from a club auction, and it ended up being with snails. Can this plant be cleaned with bleach or with cooper based fish medication in order to kill the snails, or is it too delicate?
    I intend to use most of it in a shrimp tank.

    So, oddly enough there are a number of different plants people call pellia. Monosolenium tenerum, riccia, subwassertang, and probably some others I am forgetting... some are tougher then others when it come to cleaning... can you post a picture?

    Usually any plant can withstand a bleach dip of 20 parts water 1 part bleach. The snails won't. Dip for 30 seconds then rinse and place in a bowl of dechlorinated water for a minute before placing in your tank.

    I do nof have a picture, but its definitely not riccia, but it could be the monosolenium or subwassertang.
