A floating, fast-growing plant. It will help keep your nitrates in check.

if you send me a pm with your name and address
i'll get some sent off for you on monday
you can google an image to see what it looks like.
i will say that once you have it,it spreads quickly
i have it in my garden pond,also in my aquariums indoors
and yours will come from indoors
it should travel well as we're in the same country….i tried to send some other folks
here some plants,however by the time they reached oversea they were rancid

Salt does nothing to diminish nitrate or nitrite. It can help protect a fish from brown blood disease aka nitrite poisoning (not nitrate).

An overdose of Prime can attenuate nitrite, according to reports I've seen. Seachem claims an 4x overdose of Prime can diminish nitrite and nitrate. Seachem claims a lot of things <sigh>
