I forgot about this thread. I had a taker at my door within two hours and forgot all about it. As to the plant, I honestly thought it was fake grass from an easter basket until I felt it. On Aquabid there was an auction for "Hopper O' Subwassertang" for a dollar. So what the heck, I bid on it. I only needed a golfball size portion and got a bag literally bigger than a large grapefruit. About the size of one of those miniature watermelons. I guess the person I gave it too threw the whole ball in a BB shrimp tank.
