My frogbit arrived on Tuesday, i actually got more than i orginally thought. Haku loves it, swimming between the roots and today i caught him making a bubble nest in between the plants. He must be happy with them!

I have loads of both in my tanks, frogbit is by far the best floating plant, water lettuce is ok but multiplies very quickly and ends up taking over, it also sticks to everything!

In the end i bought some mini floating water lettuce its very nice and only small at the moment...only got it as my frogbit started to die a bit!
Also i wondered has anyone got or tried the tropical mini grass iv seen it on ebay and thought id ask you guys what you thought of it. If i got it it would be for my community tank not my betta tanks. Also would it survive in sand?
