Although, as it stands, I may wait until payday to make the trade anyhow. The IRS is doing some weird stuff with my tax refund, saying I cannot receive it until next year >.<

Make sure to add the plants to water with extra extra dechlorinator after dipping.

yep, a second dip into a bucket well-overdosed with a dechlorinator will eliminate any issues with a bleach dip entering the tank (also rinse after the second dip).

I do dips all the time, works very well against algae, not always so well on snail eggs. I do occasionally stress the plants, but most recover.

I decided to take the risk. I've been reading a lot and thinking a lot on it. And I think it'll go okay. Coupled with the bleach dip, I have my shrimps and snails.
