kudos to you bro. i met many people who always blame LFS when it comes to such things.. as well as others that problem came from the supplier.

Bro, in that case, would it be advisible to drain the water used for new plants, and add in carbon and old sea mud powder?

From this incident, it also set me wondering, dw and rocks sold at lfs are potentially at higher risk since most of them are left along the corridor of lfs, which exposed them to more hazzards.

For large dw, how would you suggest cleaning it of parasite and potential foreign toxins? Large dw are not easy to soak in hot water like small dw.

One man's lost is many others gain. With this topic, it set many of us thinking harder and reducing risk of such innocent mistakes.

I tink it's not abt monetary lost but seeing LIVES lost that is causing e guilt.

Shimps' lifes are in our hands and if we are not serious, might as well not keep it. What shrimp die can buy more?
Agree! Initially, I did something to cause disaster to my tank & shrimps. My heart felt so pain. Its not abt dying & buying more. Its more like being able to care for them to make sure they survive, live well & can breed too.

I guess it would be safer to buy plants that are submerged in a tank at the LFS rather than those already out of water and stored in plastic bags waiting for purchase...

At least that way, any pesticides should have leached out at the LFS before heading our way...
