I submitted a plant profile for this plant, so perhaps Byron will approve it and this-

Proserpinaca palustris

Will magically become highlighted. If so, you can click on it for the profile.
I added it, thanks. Can you find a good photo or two to add to the profile, ones that are not copyright of course?

The "shading" may not work yet, for some reason new profiles are not shading in posts, I have pm'd the Admin.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I forgot about that plant thanks for bringing it up redchigh. The magazine Tropical Fish Keeping Hobbyist had an article about it not too long ago. You guys are killing me though with all the different plants haha. I will see what is available at my LFS and will go from there I guess.
