Plant concern.

I ordered plants online and they just got here. I'm a little concerned because the duck weed smells like gross and death and the other bag of Azolla is clearly rotted. There was also all thse like dead white larve and snails in the duckweed...I'm unsure what to do.

I would take some pictures and contact the people who sold them you. That's not really an acceptable state they are in imho. I see if they can send you replacements or a refund. Some plants, unfortunately, don't travel so well.

Yeah. just sent him a message and I believe he's going to refund me/replace with a non plant. I don't think I'm going to attempt plants again. Uck. It smells like nasty and I can only get the kind I want online so no more fo rme it seems.

What a shame :( Duck weed is a bit tempremental IME. I killed my last stuff and never knew why it stank and it rotted so quickly that I had to completely clean the tank from top to bottom.
