RAOKing off some salvinia minima, harvesting from several tanks. Just pay $7 for usps small flat rate box via PayPal. PM me to claim, 1 package available currently. Salvinia minima is a great floating plant for aquariums, its easy to grow than frogbit and water lettuce-it does not mind being under a lid, doesn't burn from bright light, and doesn't rot from condensation drips, nor is ti picky about air flow (like frogbit and water lettuce). Its an undemanding grower, and helps diffuse light for those with planters tanks getting a bit too much light, and helps suck up excess nutrients/nitrates bettas love making bubble nets in it, an enjoy the shade it gives. If you ever want to be rid of it its much easier to remove completely than duckweed. I don't know if goldfish will eat this, I've not tried it in their tank. Portion= 10"x6" tub Example of portion size below
container is 6"x5" and about 0.75" depth of riccia this is no duckweed, salvinia, or other floaters. Comes from a tank that has been snail free since set up nearly 2 years ago. There is always a chance of some algae but I don't see any. makes great floating mat or if you keep up on trimming it can be tied down to decor/rock/wood. PM me to claim.
Have 1 very large Nymphaea Taiwant for sale a light green small leafed lily plant. Comes complete with huge roots and semi dissolved root tab lodged onto said roots. Reaches over 2' tall,great for big tanks! Has baby plants (at least 5, probably more) growing off the ends of several of the leaves so you can pinch them off and plant them to make many more (shorter)plants! Want this lily to stay short? No problem! Just prune off leaves when they get too tall and within a few months it will be 'trained' to stay compact. $10 shipped (small flat rate priority box). Snail free! Sorry i don't do local pickups due to a bad experience in the past. What you see is what you get: Free add-ons: large blob of riccia or as much salvinia minimia as I can stuff into the box with the n. taiwan. Note add-ons may have snails but lily comes from snail free tank.
Last week I randomly had an algae bloom; brown algae on a decoration and on a live plant. Wasn't sure if it was good or bad so I scrubbed off as much as I could off the decoration but left it on the plant. Here's a pic: Do I need to clean it? I didnt do anything different..no extra lights..why the bloom and why is it brown? Are they eating the plant there or is that general disintegration?
