Will a peroxide dip kill anacharis?

Recommended Posts

Title says it all, I usually dip in 1:3 ratio peroxide to water solution, but I hear anacharis is particularly delicate with dips...

So does anyone know if I can use the peroxide?

How much of it do you have?

 

Keep the main portion in a bucket and try a sacrificial piece and see how its responded after a few days. That's really the only way you'll be 100% certain.

What are you doing the dip for?  Sterilization? Algae?

 

When I buy new batches, I typically will use Potassium Permanganate to sterilize before I add them to the tank. :)

I'm not concerned about snails, I have them myself.

But it's a new batch I just bought and I can already see some red worm creatures after soaking it in tap water.

So parasites/diseases.

I've never picked up pp before since I'm fairly new at plants so I haven't had to dip too many delicates. The peroxide worked on the other stuff so I didn't have to run to the store.

I don't know about peroxide.  I use Potassium Permanganate because it is the most recommended dip for plants.

Just for future reference 1:3 peroxide dip did kill the anacharis.

That's not entirely surprising to me. People spot dose hydrogen peroxide to kill things like black brush algae, but much like spot dosing gluteraldehyde, some plants don't respond overly well.

Thanks for testing. Can file that information away for future use. :)
