Yes, I am worried about it, but as you SEE, I am limited right now...
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.

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

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.

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.

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.
