The Salvinia in my 40B is overgrown and instead of dumping it in the compost later this week, I can bring some for free for any members who would like some and are going to the picnic/BBQ. I should have 3-4 portions.

There is probably some duckweed in with it, although it actually overwhelms duckweed pretty well in my tanks. And I definitely can't promise it is snail (or snail egg) free.

If that doesn't scare you off, just reply here if you are interested.

No interest? Looks like these are headed to the compost.

My pencil fish and killifish particularly enjoy picking at stuff between the roots, as well as the patches of shade.

If I didn't have a bunch already... It does make a good competitor for duckweed and is much easier to clear than duckweed is. I find it useful in shrimp tanks, as well as tanks with egg-scattering cory cats (like pygmaeus).

I already have red root floater, frog bit and duckweed to deal with. How long do the roots grow?

I'll try some walter. I already have a shrimp tank infested with duckweed, so it can't hurt anything.

A month later, and I have too much Salvinia again. I'll be at the meeting on Saturday if anyone wants some. I probably have enough for 3-4 good sized portions.

If no one does want it, you could always bag it up and donate it to the auction :).
