Water Lettuce?

Hey all-

I have a ton of flowering water lettuce growing in my pond (small man made pond not natural) and I was wondering if the water lettuce would be safe for my tanks along with my Amazon sword that is already planted? I will make sure that they are clean before I introduce them to the tank if the water lettuce is a safe bet for the tanks. :)

Thank you for your input in advance :)

Yes, it's fine for your bettas. They love swimming and laying in the roots that grow under it.

I'm so excited I found a tiny baby sprout of water lettuce in one of the tanks today. It must have been itsy when we got out floaters. I hope this one survives because the roots are very nice looking.
