It was nice of you to offer those plants. All of our tanks seem to be well planted now or I might have took them.
If anyone in the club needs some water lettuce (or duckweed), let me know before the next meeting. I can bring some. We harvest it pretty often and just throw it away. It's a great way to help get a natural tank started while you get the bottom plants established.
They also seem to be a hiding place for some baby fish. When we transferred some to an angelfish fry-raising tank, we transferred some goldfish fry along with the water lettuce and ended up raising several of them by accident.
Unfortunately, we weren't successful with raising the angelfish.
