 Hi  all
 Some  time  back  there  was  a  thread  about  using  gluteraldehyde  as  co2  source  for  plants.
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=2917&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
 
 A  good  many  people  started  using  it.
 Pls  post  your  views  and  whether  you  are  still  using  it.
 It  will  be  appreciated  if  only  actual  users  post  their  views  Very Happy  
 For  the  uninitiated  pls  go  through  the  link.
 I  am  posting  my  views  first,  I  used  it  in  tanks  having  vals,  tenneleus,  mosses  and  all  three  took  a  hit,  later  I  discountined  it.
 However  its  use  as  a  snail  killer  is  very  good.

 Gokul  from  Erode  is  one  of  the  newest  users  of  Gluteraldehyde.  He  sounds  happy.  Lets  wait  for  his  first  hand  views.  Smile

 I  used  Gluteraldehyde  for  my  former  3  feet  planted  tank.  No  algae  at  all,  good  growth  of  plants  and  no  fish  deaths.  But  i  noticed  that  my  vals  dint  do  well  when  i  added  Gluteraldehyde.  
 
 Currently  i  got  a  hair  algae  invasion  on  my  planted  tank.Crying or Very sad  
   But  i  dont  know  if  i  can  use  Gluteraldehyde  as  i  got  some  Tenelles,  dwarf  sagittaria  in  there.  Any  views  on  the  effect  of  glut  on  these  plants??

 I  don't  know  of  its  effect  on  other  plants  but  my  Vallis  and  Java  moss  got  hit  bad.  I  have  removed  the  Valls  and  moss  from  my  trial  tank.  The  other  plants  seem  to  do  well  though(Anubias-nana,  nana  petite,barteri;  Java  fern  wendetti,  and  some  others  I  cant  identify).  I'm  planning  to  experiment  with  my  outdoor  container  with  vals  and  water  lilly.  Would  like  to  see  if  it  has  any  effect  on  vals.  Sunlight  may  help  the  glut  break  down  faster.  Lets  see.  It  has  no  noticeable  effect  on  fish  as  far  as  I  could  see.
 
 I  sourced  glut  through  a  lab  distributor.  I  got  the  correct  percentage  mixed  with  the  help  of  college  staff.  It  was  done  professionally  and  safely.  I  now  store  it  in  a  dark  glass  bottle  and  administer  it  with  a  pipette.  I  store  it  very  carefully.  I  don't  want  my  young  son  to  be  anywhere  near  it.  I  don't  ever  let  it  touch  my  skin,  even  though  it  is  less  potent  at  that  percentage.  You  might  have  read  of  some  guys  in  Arup's  thread,  splashing  25%  glut  directly  into  the  tank(may  splash  on  your  hands,  fish  might  come  thinking  you  are  feeding  and  get  a  dose  of  25%  glut  etc).  Don't  even  try  that.  Sorry  for  sounding  pompous.  
 
 From  what  I've  learned  till  now,  it's  good  for  algae  control,  for  nano's  as  co2  alternative  and  for  bigger  tanks  I've  dosed  only  thrice.  Had  some  great  vals  so  stopped  dosing.
 
 Best  of  luck  Thumb Up  .  Easy  does  it.  Great  you  read  Arup's  post  and  researched  about  glut  Clapping  .

 Vals.  mosses,  even  crypts  are  said  to  have  issues  with  glut.
 Any  other  users,  there  were  a  lot  of  persons  who  started  using  glut.  at  that  time.

 Adding  to  this  question,  Is  there  a  relation  between  sensitivity  to  Gluteraldehyde  and  Sensitivity  to  Seachem  Flourish  excel?
 
 I  see  that  Val,  mosses  and  anarchis  are  sensitive  t  excel  as  well  as  glut.

 I  received  my  stock  of  Gluteraldehyde  from  Suuresh  in  2006.
 
 Wiped  my  whole  stock  of  Shrimps  in  the  tank  into  which  it  was  added   Sad  .  After  that  I  discontinued.
 
 Good  Algicide  no  doubt.  But  not  good  for  crustaceans  if  you  have  them  in  your  nano's.
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Nayak,  Let  us  know  the  concentration  of  the  solution  you  added  or  if  you  added  then  give  us  the  number  of  drops  added  to  vouume  of  water  in  the  aquarium.

 To  add  to  Nayak,  I  guess  even  cories  and  loaches  would  also  be  hit  with  glut.

 I  diluted  30ml  0f  25%  glutaraldehyde  in  500ml  RO  water.
 
 I  added  3ml  every  morning  to  my  2*1.5*1.5  feet  tank  using  disposable  syringe.  It  was  added  before  switching  on  the  lights  and  I  continued  this  regimen  for  a  week.  In  fact  the  dosing  was  much  less  than  prescribed  since  this  was  a  tank  running  for  6  months  without  any  CO2.  I  was  just  experimenting  to  find  whether  I  can  get  to  grow  my  plants  faster.The  lighting  was  Philips  true-light  36W*2  nos.
 
 It  was  densely  planted  tank  with  Sagittaria  subulata  covering  the  entire  substrate  along  with  Anubias  Lancelot.
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Crypts  had  no  issues  with  the  Glut  in  my  tank.  They  grew  pretty  well.

 Yes,  Arup  identified  the  active  ingredient  in  Seachem  Flourish  excel  -  Gluteraldehyde.

 I  used  the  same  glut  conc  as  Mitra.  Saad  knows  the  concentration.
 
 I  dosed  it  in  my  nano,the  tennelus  never  started  any  runner[but  dint  die].But  apongeton,and  hygros  did  grow  well.I  even  had  ludwiga,and  crypts  growing  well  there.Even  rotala.rotundifolia  did  well.
 
 But  now  i  have  shelved  it  Very Happy  and  started  using  just  DIY-CO2.
 My  nano[if  i  start  it]  might  get  the  glut.BTW  its  in  a  black  bottle,  hope  solution  is  still  alvie.
 
 Good  luck
