Look at my pretty pond plants
August 5, 2022 1:16am CST
Those large floating water lettiuce had killed most of my fish so I got rid most of them. I took some time to buy new fishes, mostly mollies to restock some of ponds that had been empty for sometime. I preferred guppies more but they're not alot in his shop now a days. While I was browsing I shared the seller that most of my excessive aquaplants goes to my crayfish as they have grown a bit big in the past few months. But he advised me to sell most of them to him because some of his customers are looking for plants for their aquarium. I will try to grow them after a week, too much and it will suffocate my new fishes. With regards to the pictures, the first one is a oblong bucket with duckweeds and water lettuce. The second one used to be a trash can, converted into Lotus plant wtih duckweed and water lettuce. Both has molly fishes now.

Nice if you can sell the water lettuce since I think there are many looking for them. I do not think that plants can kill the fish, oftentimes they die because the water condition is not good anymore. Plants, in fact, can supplement in oxygenation of water but of course, when the water is polluted by fish waste and plants could not absorb those excess waste and not partially replaced it at least once a week it could kill the fish.
@Letranknight2015 They do not affect fishes in fact they help condition the water since they try to get as much waste from Fish to make the water livable. But of course if there is too much waste in the water column this is what poisons the fish but plants do not kill fish. The roots even become the hiding place for fish eggs and the fry too.
