have anyone gone out to their local lakes, ponds, rivers, and or creeks and collected wild plants from them for your aquarium??
I have recently been fising a lot and been to a few lakes and rivers. spotted a variety of plants such as frogbits, cambobas, and lilys.
I fished in minnesota, wisconsin, and georgia. of course the whole aquatic planting thing started with out in the feild research, collecting them, quaratine them, then add it into the aquarium.
since there are aquatic plants out there locally, wouldnt this be a great opportunity to get some free plants?? although it may be free I still wonder if it were to be accomplished, will it damage the ecosystem or what ever reason it might be of use for. but just by getting a small amount. I guess there wouldnt be any harm....
I would really like to get my hands on some wild frogbits too. thing is, I have no tanks now and I dont know if they will be there all season long.
got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty.
got whozits and whatzits galore.
but who cares?
i want more!
