So, I went on a rant the other day in which I was discussing how I have spent more money on aquarium plants than my outside food garden plants (close to giving up on live plants, i'm just too poor to keep buying them right now.).
The only difference being that the aquarium plants I can't seem to keep alive and healthy looking.(mostly because my local fish store only carries high demanding plants and anacharis) My mom then replies, silly girl...why are you spending money on plants when we live in FLORIDA. and there's a river and a lake right down the street!
Got me thinking, would it be safe to use plants from the lake and river? Obviously I would set them up in a separate tank first, and maybe add a few drops of an anti parasite med for aquarium, but would this be safe? Has anyone ever done this?
