Aquatic Plants in Colorado
A great idea, in theory. I tried it a couple of years ago with some aquatic river plants I found and they grew very well for about a month. Found out the plants were used to much colder water temperatures and constant aeration. The temperature in my tanks is 76 degrees compared to 50 to 60 degrees in the Colorado waters at the height of summer.
Anyway, the plants didn't last because I couldn't duplicate their original conditions.
Again, a good idea, but it didn't work for me.
