    Question Trying to save my Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'?

    Tree years ago i planted 'Monte Carlo' and thought i lost it all after removing green hair algae (Got pulled up with the algae). Last week removed a large quantity of Vallisneria Americana in preparation for a complete tank remodel. After the water cleared found a 1/4 sized patch of the 'Monte Carlo'.

    My question is what is the best way to clean all traces of algae off it and the best way to keep it alive until my tank is finished?

    Thank You

    Beyond lightly vacuuming off the algae with a small water vacuum and maybe some very light brushing with a soft paint brush as well as keeping in in 'clean' water to starve the algae, I don't think there is much you can do without risk of harming the plant further... Everything I have read about dipping the plants in this or that to remove algae seems to risk causing more damage then it fixes, so those methods are rolls of the dice...
