    Hmmmm...that doesn't sound too promising, Sue. It's my first attempt with it as I was looking to try something a bit different than duckweed, frogbit, and water lettuce. I've had great experiences with all of those - even the duckweed, which many people despise - but I'm always on the lookout for new experiences haha

    I have no idea how plants will fare in this tank. It is the Fluval Sea Evo and I am currently using the stock light, which is designed for saltwater/corals. It is very high K spectrum with a pretty sterile stark white appearance. I have a couple more options I can use for the tank. I have an old Current Sat+ and a 30" Finnex Stingray that I can experiment with, but that would require removing the hood. Not sure if I'm too keen on that idea. Our three dogs sleep in our bedroom and also free roam in there when we are out, so I prefer to keep the hood to not only discourage them from trying to get into the tank but to also prevent dog hair from getting in there.

    You may have a different experience than I have had. Will be interested to see. Obviously the guy selling it to me has great luck because the bunch he sent was very healthy and nice looking. I also got some frogbit from him which is in one of my 20g tanks - also under one of the older FugeRays - and this is doing great. I had bought frogbit from him before and it took off under a Stingray light but I had broken this tank down and tossed it because it was mixed with too much duckweed (not from him, but from me transferring it somehow). I don't mind duckweed either. It's easy to control unless it's mixed up with something else.

    So wonderful! What size tank are they currently in and do you have something large enough to move them to as necessary?

    They are in a 13.5 gal, which is like 22x12x12. It's not the best for growing them out, but it is what I had on hand when this all started going down last week haha

    I'm hoping to have a larger tank set up to move them into once they start getting larger, but I'm not entirely sure what that will be. I guess that all depends on how many actually survive through this process. If only a few make it, I'm hoping I can keep them in this tank long enough to where they can be transferred back to the 90g.

    Any idea how old/big they need to be in order for shops or locals to take them in?

They were in my Spec V tanks, one of which has the original light - these melted - and the other has an older Finnex FugeRay - these are doing OK. I'm starting to see a little die off here, too.

    I'm going to try moving part of a clump to one of my larger tanks and see what happens there and maybe to my 5.5g that I'm starting up to QT some new fish. This tank has a Stingray on it.

    Hope you have better luck than I've had so far. It's a nice looking floater.
    I had the same experience with 3 different varieties of salvinia, its gorgeous but doesn't like my waters.

    Yup they are mostly ignorant on anything other than store layout, lol.

    BTW an easy way to have made a sponge filter would have been to get one of the sponge media inserts and just cut a long slit in the middle and shoved some airline tubing in. Its what I did when I threw together a small QT for some khulis. Worked very well, matter of fact it is still working in the same container-I just shoved all my extra susswasertang in the tub.

    That sounds like a great DIY option, Nat! My new sponge filter came in yesterday so that's already set up and bubbling happily away, but I will definitely store your design away in my mental file cabinet for future use!

    Not too thrilled to hear that Nat didn't have the best results with the salvinia, either. Hmmmm...

    I currently have the chunks floating in my 90g. They didn't look so great after sitting in the hot parcel locker here at work all weekend, and I was hesitant to toss them directly into the fry tank in case they started to decay. I'll keep an eye on them for a few days.

    Still boggles my mind a bit that Han would ship the plants out Thursday evening. I don't know any other sellers, freshwater and saltwater, that ship things beyond Wednesday due to the problems with weekends and delayed delivery.

    I'm wondering what it is that was making it so difficult for you ladies to keep. I have pulled it up in FlowGrow's database as that is usually my go-to for plant care, and it is listed as fairly easy. It needs some good light, but apparently tolerates a wide range of hardness and temperature.
