Onion Plant
 
At Petsmart they had an onion plant for sale in their aquatic plants section. :shock: It was just labeled as onion plant... and it was like one of those wild onions, you could see part of the white bulb sticking out of the substrate. I thought this was really bizarre. What's up with this? Can you really keep an onion as an aquatic plant?

Googled up some info for you. I knew only one thing about the plant and that it was a member of the lily family and very good for a "tough plant" tank. I hope this link will help you.

Interesting... Thanks herefishy! Makes sense that the fish wouldn't like the taste of onion, lol.

Aww, too bad they ate it. I guess snails don't mind the taste.
