I have a 20 gallon tall with 4 goldfish who are fed twice a day by an automatic fish feeder and my ammonia, nitrites and nitrates are all undetectable since planting this plant. It will grow fast so just cut it in half every two weeks.
Hey Thanks. Sounds like a great idea. I will look for some locally, tomorrow.
