    I know this is probably a pretty silly question, but does anyone happen to have any of these laying about?

    duckweed, water lettuce, water hyacinth, etc...those types of aquatics...smaller would be better.


    Edit: Actually just duckweed I guess...the other ones would get way too large for the tank i need it for.

    Invasive but seems to be high in protein. I ended up with a red eared slider so i figured i'd keep some duckweed growing in his tank in case he gets hungry when i'm not around.

    Ahh okay. But check out with your Dep. Agr. IF you live in Florida or some other states it is highly illegal to own any of those (at least the water lettuce or hyacinth).

    I tried looking for some info, all i saw so far is that it's endangered in NY, nothing on the site really marked it as invasive.

    Just looking for duckweed though.

    If you send the money for shipping I can send you Pistia stratiotes (Water lettuce) and Salvinia molesta.
    I hate duck weed because of it's small size. The Salvinia molesta is a very nice size, maybe around the size of a dime or nickle.

    LOL agreed with endparenthesis.

    I've got duckweed in my tanks. I agree that it is a pain. I'd like to get some Salvinia for the reasons Elgecko stated.

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)
