    How to Sanitize Live Plants

    We keep floating watersprites, java moss, some other miscellaneous floating plants in all of our tanks. What we'd like to know is if anyone can suggest some easy but effective way to sanitize live plants. We don't want to put plants from one tank into another without making sure they are not...
