    I just visited the giant Big Al's located in Tamarac, Florida (very nice) and purchased some new plants. I planted everything in my tank in one shot at startup. I have no algae or diseases and have Discus fish only. How can I sterilize these plants before I put them in the tank.

    Thanks I'll use the bleach solution. I also have a bottle of Lime-it from back in the day which I'll use afterward for good measure.

    I personally do not bother, I soak them in tap water for a few hours, trim up good, then plant.

    Never had an issue.
