but if anyone was living in my state and wanted to meet me close enough to my home they are welcome to free frogsbit

I might look into that frogsbit for later tanks. I just recently got a floating water sprite, and I'm hoping it grows well. My fish loooves to sleep in it.

be careful throwing it out...if it gets into your local waterways it is known to be an invasive species and can overgrow lots of native plants and play hell on an ecosystem.

also, if your stem plants aren't getting enough light because of it, you might want to take a second fluorescent bank and place it at the base of the tank, angled up and inward so that they get light from an unobstructed source.

yeah,i cut it up and put it in a bag and then put it in the trash bag..i reckon its chances of gettin into a lake are slim,it will most likely end up in a land fill..

i try keep patches of light coming through for my stem plants,i dont really have any fast growing stems at the moment so that sucks,cant afford any more lighting for now definately something ill consider in future ty

That floating stuff is Frogbit? Cool! Do you live anywhere near the CT border? I could meet you somewhere and take some of that awesomeness off your hands.
