I have a young, small, Pan Pacific, in a 55 gallon. Stuck it in there
until I have time to plant it in the pond. It looks so good I'm leaving
it for a while. I would imagine, that if you stick to dwarf varieties,
you'll be fine. The 2 links below are the dwarf varieties that I have in
my water garden tubs. I have no affiliation with this person, just a
