Elodea

January 9, 2006

Just added some not so nice looking Elodea plants into our aquarium. The tank is small, unheated and has a few goldfish (Comets) and some tropicals (Zebras) as well.

The first bunches of Elodea have dissappeared (they’re good eating for the goldfish) so I figured that a few more would go down well. This time I am weighing them down at least, so they won’t be floating all over the tank 🙂

Back to the new plants – I actually got them at no charge as they are looking a little sad (mostly the brown colouring gave that away!) It would be unreasonable to expect them to live for very long, but perhaps if I increase the hours of light in the tank they may last a few weeks. Cross your fingers.
