Sanitizing tank - Cladophora

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


I took down a tank I am redoing completely.  The tank I took down had Cladophora that remained pretty isolated to one part of the tank on a Crinum plant.  

I sanitized the tank with a 1:4 vinegar and water solution.  After all this, I’m reading that Clado is not killed by vinegar or bleach.  I really really want to make sure it does not enter the new tank I’m setting up in there.  

i did read online that plants can be spot treated to try to remove it with H2O2.  Should I soak the tank in a solution of H2O2 in water?  And if so, at what ratio?  Or does anyone have any other recommendations?  Am I being too paranoid?  I did razor blade any “gunk” stuck to the glass but the edges are hard to get into.  It looks clean, but I’m still concerned

thank you so much!

Use hydrogen peroxide. Just buy it from the grocery and pour it on straight on the tank. You don’t need to fill just hit all surfaces well and let it sit. 

Great, thank you so much for your help!
