I'm still fighting off a parasite that is vectored by copepods (tiny critters found in freshwater). There are a variety of unwanted parasites and other nasties that are potential hitch-hikers on any plant, even plants from a LFS or a pond. If you practice quarantine procedures on your fish, it's also a good idea to use it on plants before introducing them to a stocked tank.
Isolation from a fish host will break many parasite life-cycles.
Yea, I agree. No fish in this tank, just plants. I just want to see If I can grow them. If successful then I might think about incorporating them into the other tanks.
This is an educational build.
