    Ok cool. Not for the tank then. Interesting. I might try growing it in the garden then, there are a few damp corners it might flourish in (although I'm in the UK so it might be a bit cold for it if it's a tropical plant).

    Thanks for the ID.

    Try it in an empty aquarium with a bunch of rocks in it and only a couple inches of water. Like a small vivarium. You could add some other plants as well. Just not fish.

    That's an idea actually. I don't have a spare aquarium at the moment but I have one arriving soon that was a giveaway in a magazine subscription (Practical Fishkeeping) so soon I will have a 15 litre. I was going to just keep it as a hospital tank and set it up when I need it...but that's given me an idea. Cheers.

    Passing this along as a visual. Maybe you could even have an african frog?

    Don't think I can realistically keep any more animals. I already have a 120 litre fully stocked, and currently cycling a 30 litre which is destined, eventually, for a colony of shrimp. Given that we are in a rented flat (with no real security with a month's notice period) I don't want to be lumbered with something I couldn't tear down without feeling guilty.

    What I really need is a flat that we own! And this is why I play the National Lottery

    Right on, Hobbsy! Messy stuff.
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark
