Blyxa. But he probably did not refer to Japonica.

What about a list of common aquarium plants we grow that we could eat?
What about Salvinia? Or other fast, common plants in tanks?

I was looking into duckweeds as food once and I read that they were exceptionally high in protein. Apparently not the most palatable however. There are aquaculture system designs which use duckweed as the main source of food for the tilapia, so that's kind of cool. I imagine one could do something similar with crayfish. Marmokrebs, anyone?

the problem isnt the plant so much as the chemicals we put into the tank like dechlore. the things we add is what makes the fish and plants where we cant eat them.

I don't add any chemicals to my tanks and my water is ground water. The Salvinia is growing much faster and better than duckweed, wanted to find another use other than trashing it.

I've heard of duckweed as a staple before, as well, in parts of South/SE Asia.

Beyond that... Lotuses are staples in China and other parts of Asia. Lotus roots, lotus seeds, lotus flowers, the list goes on. It would probably have to be a huge aquarium to get any appreciable amount, though!

What about watercress? Not sure if needs to be submerged or emersed to grow well, but I see it in the wild in both phases.

That's what I heard too. I also read people eat nymphaea bulbs. I know the hydrocotyle species are definitely edible... (I see the Asian drinks that they make out of it a lot.)
