yep, safe for fish:) Being a federal noxious weed means that it is very invasive and thus should not be introduced into natural waterways. Its fast, hardy growth means that it can easily take over a new habitat, choking out native vegetation and causing harm to the natural environment; like when sheep and goats were introduced to Australia. It is not poisonous or anything like that:) Your tank conditions sound fine for it to thrive. It like lots of trace supplementation to produce the beautiful red color.

From what I've read you should not dispose of cuttings from this plant (or other noxious weeds) by flushing them. I throw mine into a waste container on my patio and let them dry before putting them in the trash. Hopefully this works because I don't have a fireplace. :)
