Dirty Shells


Recommended Posts

As I mentioned before, I had a mishap with algae taking over my take whilst I was away. Everything is cool now and its looking great. One minor problem, though, is that all of my spare shells (for hermits) are still green. I've taken them out and scrubbed them down, but they are pretty well stained. Any ideas on getting it off?

It's nothing critical, it's just ugly. Nice, pretty shells, make for a pretty tank, ya know?

+1 for the bleach. Use about a 5-10% solution, and not very long (10-15 minutes) to start with. If it does not come clean with the short time, then increase it. Just be sure it is dry before putting back in the tank so there is no residual bleach.
