when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

hmmm i find it hard to belive that it's so hard to get hold of,
looks like summer pond searches may be on the cards,however
would that pose a problem to take from the natural invironment,
and possible no wanteds in the aquarium.

I would search ponds for it now if it hasn't frozen yet. Or maybe some canals or ditches. It has to be around one of you and still a viable plant.

Then we just need to figure out how to mail it to the states without costing a fortune.

I would venture a guess itowuld be close to $75-100 US. $40-50 UK. Is really expensive to ship as fast we need to get them here alive. I looked into it once before and the cheapest I found was $82 US for guaranteed 3 day delivery. Might be less now with the economy hurting so bad here. Will have to check it out.

$0.94 cents for me to send you one or there abouts.
Is $60-75 to get a package there in 3 days now and that is through standard post, USPS for 3 pounds, 12x6x7 package.

I can do that for a postacard. Wonder how many plants will fit on one?

Do you this plant and will sell some? Or you're just letting us know shipping costs??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
