how to kill riccia
I have a big bunch of e-tennelus here but it contain trace of riccia stuck in it. I dont want to put it in my tank cause that would mixt the riccia with my dwarf riccia (and I dont want that).
Is there a good and effective way to kill those trace of riccia?
Excel kills riccia when overdosed. Peroxide will also work at 1oz per 10G.
great! Excel is not avalable where I live but I have peroxide. Do you think that this will harm the E tenellus as well?

Unfortunately Excel does not kill Bladderwort
There's are a few liverworts other than Riccia that Excel kills pretty effectively also.
The selectivity is better with Riccia and liverworts than with Cladophora.
I'm after a good, well better method than picking and Exceling this alga, blackout combos worked well in the past, but I still think there's a better method tog et rid of this one.
Killing Riccia selectively is a very useful tool.
