    At the recommendation of ranchulover, I visited "Fish 4 U" in Salt Lake City area today. One of the nicer fish stores I have been to......great selection of fish and equipment. Pretty sparse on the goldies, though. What else is new?

    Picked up $5 worth of frogbit. Does anyone have any input on frogbit vs goldfish?

    Also, what do you recommend to sterilize & quarantine? I am thinking 2 month quarantine, and either PP, salt, or hydrogen peroxide dip. I am super paranoid about bringing stuff into my fish room, particularly from the LFS.

    Try this

    I think PP or Peroxide may fry this stuff.

    In the spices department, you can find Alum ( aluminum sulfate for use in making pickles, Pretty sure 1tyeaspoon per 3 gallons and stir with the frogbit and you will hill most proptzoans

    I find the goldies eat the roots but never seen them go for the leaves :)
