Re: NFC: Re:native plants in aquaria

I'm glad to hear that someone is working with these.  I transplanted a bunch 
of what we call 'coontail' out here (sorry, don't know the scientific name 
for it...though I've got a request in with the habitat crew to find out) 
from the lake (the day before it developed ice) into my 180 gal tank.  So 
far, most of the original stem segments don't look so hot but the growth 
tips have added 2-5" in less than a month of very attractive growth.  I have 
them under 12 hours of light...just the regular florescent bulbs that came 
with the hoods.

It would be really nice if we could find some native plants that are 
consistent performers...always looking for ways to avoid importing more 
potential escapees!
