The vals would be okay, excepting that the "smaller" specimen I sent back is about 3 feet tall.

I suppose the mosquitofish would be okay, they're just... kinda grey and boring. I can give you some fry when they breed (and they will breed), but their only useful function is to eat mosquitos in stagnant puddles - the ones that I sent back are going to be on skeeter control duty in my outdoor plant tubs.

Anyway, if I see anything that might be suitable, I'll snag it for you. Just don't expect a smorgasbord of suitable plant species.
Thanks for the consideration, but I was being purely facetious. I'm actually well-stocked at the moment and I want to hold off on any additional plants until summer.
