I was looking to add some of this to the aquarium very early on only to find that it is considered an invasive species and cannot be sold. Yesterday I happened to be driving past a lakeside park and asked my daughter if she wanted to wander about, it has some trails that meander along the shoreline.
Once we gave up on the inept driver (didn't know the first thing about trailering and was trying to back the boat trailer down to the launch.... between jackknifing the trailer, catching large rocks under the truck and not accepting any assistance.... if nothing else it was entertaining) we found some frogbit and decided to take some home for the aquarium. I usually have a bucket in the car for just such occasions... sure.
Here is a shot of one string. It appears to be either the european of the native north american variety.
I need to first remove a bunch of the floating mass that we already have in the tank so there is room for it, but I need to do some more rinsing to remove the native fauna from the plants before it gets added anyway.
