Hello all,
I got a ball of chaeto from my LFS. I did a freshwater dip and some pests fell out as well as copepods. My tank is just starting up, and no pest algae has been introduced: hair, bubble, etc. I've been quarantining the chaeto for 2 weeks now with a bucket, a heater, and a light on timer. How do I ensure that no pest algae gets introduced when I add my chaeto? Do I dip it in Hydrogen Peroxide?

I think the one I'm most worried about is hair algae. Is there any way I can guarantee I don't introduce it into my tank? It's a 180g so I'm trying to be as careful as possible.
