Question Alodia?

First off.. did I spell it right?
Second off... In my area, it is easy to get ahold of, a LFS has them for cheap.
Third off... here's what it looks like.



And Fourth off... Do you think that I should get a few for my 29 gallon tank? i know very little on them.

It is indeed Elodea which is also known as anacharis. Search up anacharis and you will get the plant I am talking about. I have that plant in my 29 gallon and it is growing great with almost no maintenance. A good plus is that it is an ammonia mop. It will suck up a good amount of that dissolved fish waste so you can worry less about your water params. :) It looks nice too. Teachers call it elodea actually. We used it in biology last year lol. I was like omg thats my live plant!

thanks! i so bad at plants! i had a clay pot okay? well, i put an alovera plant in it, one week later, it was dead. then i put a flower in it. the flower died after a few days. now i have bermuda grass there and it has stayed for 2 months now, as alive as the day that i put it in. i think that i over water the plants, but that is not possible for fish tank plants so...
