Will this pondweed harm my fish?
I have brought in some pondweed (candian pondweed i think) from outside and have put it into a container to let it grow before entering the aquarium. Should i do anything to the weed to secure the saftey of my fish?
If it were me (and it's not!) I would treat it before ever thinking of putting it in my tank. There could be all type of critters living in it. I would treat with potassium permagante to kill any unwanted organisms that may me living in the water you took the weed from. PP is very staning so if you use this product be very careful, as it will turn anything it comes into contact with purple! I wore gloves when I used it.
Will it stain the weed purple? :P
