All these decorations must be pre-disinfect: algae wash in a weak solution of manganese solution, the rest carefully boil. The same treatment before lowering into the water, and everything so that the inhabitants of the aquarium have remained healthy.

Therefore, it is necessary to observe the dosage and monitor whether everything is eaten. Collect the under-eaters with a net from the surface or suction from the bottom, thoroughly and carefully. Deal with the very tiny remnants, as well as with greenery on the windows, good help sticky catfish. Wonderful cleaners, also very cute.
