Yes, they were made for fish tanks. In fact, they were labeled Betta Plants! They are small and that's what I needed for the front of my tank. I got them from Petco, not my favorite choice but the next closest store is about 25 miles away. (I have 2 saltwater fish stores in town but not freshwater.) The salespeople in my Petco are terrible! When I was buying my plants, I overheard her trying to sell someone one of those small "Betta" tanks (about 1/2 gallon) and telling the people that Bettas don't need filters or heaters. Just get one of those and a fish and go. I ALMOST said something but my daughter was with me and said "Don't make a scene Mommy". LOL Yes, I tend to jump into conversations like that without invitation... After a thorough cleaning and 100% water change today, no more signs of pink. Hopefully they're done.
