Water lettuce

Hey I got some water lettuce and it's being bashed on by my hob filter is there anything I can do to make it where it won't? I put it on the opposite side of the tank and it still gets back over there!! I'm losing roots so I need to do something

Han makes custom guards for floating plants. I haven't purchased one myself but do have his filter intake guards and shrimp caves.

You could try using a short length of clear airline tubing to make a "corral".

Good move ... I let mine keep getting swept under because it was so pretty, like dancing shining fairies, and it killed it pretty quickly.

That's interesting! I have some in my Endlers tank with high output and I'm literally scooping out handfuls every week to get rid of....

Same here. And the ones I threw outside are finally starting to get to their full size.
