Help me KILL it...
#1
This is Aegagropila linnaei, AKA Cladophora.

Underwater it is an awesome, green ball of goodness. It can also grow on wood.

So I though, 'Hey, lets try this stuff emmersed in my vivarium!'

BAD IDEA

This is emmersed Clado:

Brownish, Greenish, Grey puke. ITs ugly. Its spreading fast. And I cannot kill it.

Normally I would use glutaraldehyde to kill it in an aquarium. With sensitive frogs in the tank, I don't dare use a harsh chemical!

Help would be appreciated before my tank turns to fuzzy puke!!!

Well I have been reading that larger doses of cleated copper can kill it. Frogs aren't sensitive to copper are they?

I have been spraying it with H202 also which helps but its a SLOW process. I'm also wondering if a vampire crab would eat it???

Would covering it with a thick layer of leaves work by smothering it from getting any light?

That was suggested to me a few times, but i did not try it. I removed the frogs and killed it with glutaraldehyde. I do not think I would recommend this to someone unfamiliar with the chemical though.
