Ordered frogbit from azgardens.com. And some shrimp. I ordered from them for the first time only because for some reason Amazon wouldn't deliver frogbit to me - I live in California. I don't know exactly why they won't ship it here. Maybe because Frogbit is an invasive plant?
Anyway, I paid $118. It took them more than two weeks. I expected to get twenty shrimp, instead I got eighteen barely shrimplets.
standard triple-A Duracell for scale.
This is huge. Probably taller than my 29G tank. Apparently, instead of Amazon Frogbit (limnobium Laevigatum) I accidentally have ordered American Frogbit (Limnobium spongia).
Now I don't know what to do with it. I don't have a pond. I don't think I can return it (who the hell sends a plant back by mail?). And I don't want to pay huge shipping cost and wait for another two weeks for the plant to arrive.
- can I still use the plant I got in my tank? If I take smaller leaves and put them in my tank, would they still grow into huge monsters?
- what's the best place to buy Amazon Frogbit around SF Bay Area?
