Haha, as far as I can tell, there is no shortage of frogbit in this world. I don't think it would be missed.

It just makes the water look cloudy and dirty from a distance, with all the tiny...

Frogbit

I'm thinking of getting rid of this frogbit in my 1g bowl.

It has done the job of giving a nice cover... but the roots grow so fast and so long, they have taken over the entire bowl. They are...

That's a good idea. Do you think it would be a problem keeping 12 fish in a 5 gallon bucket of stagnant water for like 3 or 4 hours?

I think that's the right idea. It must have just been a pH shock. They all seem happy now, swimming energetically and eating. So that's good... but I did lose 5 fish, and that is not good.

Haha yeah, I'm not giving up yet. I figure if I just keep replanting little tiny bits of it everyday, something is bound to catch before they can root it up.

It looks so pathetic now though, as...
