Hello, I am new to this forum so please if this is the wrong place for this post let me know. I am currently having an outbreak in some type of green algae that I have yet to identify. In the book ecology of the planted aquarium, Walstad mentions on page 172 adding water lettuce to the tank to help take in access nutrients filter more light, and help smother out the algae growth. Upon looking into purchasing this plant I found that it is illegal to own it in my state (FL) without a special permit. Is there another plant I may add to my 10gal freshwater tank that would achieve a similar effect? Thank you for the help!
