    I have a few Anubia plants that have developed green slime algae on the roots which I think is interfering with their growth. I am thinking of using one of the above treatments. But instead of dosing the tank, I have a 4 gallon empty tank with lights that I can use for treatment. I have read up on hydrogen peroxide and I know it will change ferris iron to ferric iron and I do not think its a good idea to use it in my main tank.
    What do you think of my idea and in your experience, which treatment would you use?

    H2O2 likely would be better.

    I'd leave the roots alone or trim them off.

    Thanks,
    I'll be treating them tonight with H2O2 as the treatment is more effective in the dark.
