Red face A Hyacinth?

My mom gave me this little bulb of hyacinth, and it was kinda ugly, but it had bright blue roots, and was healthyish lol
I put it in the aquarium, being all experimental and risky,
and it bloomed overnight O.O
now there are purple flowers all over Hisashi's little eating spot (in the roots of the Hyacinth) He seems to enjoy it.
Is it okay while it is small?
It is remarkingly beautiful to see his blue self under those lavender flowers.

I mean I have been watching pretty closely, I sear I would cry if it hurt the little guy,
He seems only happier with it floating around to get under, I took a pic of him under it.
I also got some duckweed, I just don't want it to grow like crazy O.O
So far he seems really good
what is really funny is Spoof and the duckweed,
it gets pushed down with the filter flow, and instead of his normal riding the flow to the gravel, now, he attempts to ride the duckweed, I must get a video of that fish someday, my surfer fishie

They're not meant to be submerged, are they? You should take pictures while it's in, though, because I'm interested in how it looks. I suppose, if you wanted, you could keep it in until it starts rotting and adversely effecting your bio-load and ammonia.

the duckweed just floats around, until it hits the filter output, and I got a pic, it isn't the best.
It is really pretty, or at least I think so :)

It's probably water hyacinth then. :) As long as it's not underwater, just floating at the top, it should be fine.

Google it. My greenhouse class just did a project and hyacinths were one of the flowers.

Aren't hyacinths bluebells, those that are found in woods?
