Big Als sold me Egeria densa (Elodea densa?) or a reasonable
facsimile in a pot last year for $6. I found it to be a nuisance,
grew too fast, and drove up the pH when my CO2 generator petered out.
It was composted.
Hornwort and goldfish is a good combination, if one can get the
weed to grow faster than the goldfish consume it. My neighbour
managed this quite well and both flourished.
