aquatic plants

Prior to putting new plants into your tank just make certain that they're clean and totally free from germs and unwanted snails. To do this, rinse them under the tap and remove any yellow or decaying leaves, and also remove any of the jellylike eggs of snails you might find on the leaves. They can then be immersed in a solution of concentrated lime water diluted with water to a proportion of six parts tap water to one component lime water. To make lime water, liberally mix hydrated lime in water and let the sediment settle, then draw off the clear water and mix as previously described.
