    Default Java Fern From Malaysia


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello,
    It has been a while since I have posted here. Recently I ordered some Java Fern for my 20G and 55G tanks. I didn't read where they were being shipped from though. After 1.5 weeks of waiting they arrived, little baby java ferns. Should I put them in and hope for the best or should I put the plants into a quarantine bucket with fish tank water.

    It looks like they have some mud/debris on them so might they contain snails?

    Thanks for any replies!!

    Ferns are attached to wood, not planted. You probably know that, tho. I use fishing line. Not an easy job if they are just tiny, tho. Did you see any snails in the bag at all?

    I know that they are attached to wood. I have several pieces of wood in each tank with fishing line at the ready.

    I just took a cup of water from one of the tanks and put it in the bags they came in. After swirling it around under a light I could only make out floating debris. It seems as though there are no snails but I am still not convinced.
