Originally I had placed a cutting from my wife's pothos after I read somewhere that willows could clear up a tank. Sadly, the pothos did not clear it up it is a 75 gallon and the pothos grew exponentially but the clearing did not occur.

Lately I've been growing watercress in the tank and its doing ok with a shop type fluorescent lighting. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience growing watercress in the aquarium since it is a known very nutritional veggy and would certainly would compliment some meals.

Also, has anyone eaten the algae in the picture that tends to take over the top of the aquarium in the following pics.

Thanks

Sorry I had to use links since the upload restrictions are pretty tight.

First and foremost, just IMO.
I don't think you should eat anything from your pond or aquarium, unless it was made for that specific purpose which then would lead you to hydroponics or aquaponics. There are reasons why, but not going to get into that in this post.

if your having issues "clearing" your water then you prob. have green algae problem? go check out my thread in this case under "library" you'll see it.

if it isn't green water you suffer from, then you have to much flow in your water stirring up all the buildup on your substrate, which in turn means you have to little filtration...
