    Hey Folks,

    I am planning my second planted tank and want some advice on how to deal with the bacteria that causes PopEye.

    My LFS keeps their plants for sale with fishes for sale.
    Hypothetically, you could buy plants from your LFS and unknowingly introduce Popeye as you add the new plants in your display tank.

    My current plan is to establish the plants in the display tank first, then leave it fishless for 1 month before adding the fishes. Hopefully the bacteria starves to death during that month without a host.

    Will the above work?
    How do you deal with the Popeye bacteria from Plants at quarantine?

    To provide a better description, I would like to add my concern as Eye Infections in General like Cloudy Eye, not just Pop Eye.

    Also, I am concerned with the Bacteria responsible for Eye Infection hitch hiking on the Plants.

    The Fishes I can quarantine separately in a 20 gallon and with Erythromycin ready.
