Hi: After many e-mails and several phone
calls I believe I found this type of aquatic
plant. I stopped in a Water garden place
and asked about it. They took me into
their huge greenhouse where they grow
numeros pond plants.The ones they sell as Water ferns are exactly what I have
been looking for. The leaf and stem shapes are different depending on which
part is submerged andwhich part is exposed to sunlight. They were kind enough to give me two bunchesFree)
Nice folks to deal with.
In one huge concrete pond there were
hundreds of pretty guppies.
How do the guppies handle the alkalinity
that must leach from the concrete??

Guppies do fine in that kind of water. Mine bread very often (like all guppies do) in my pH 8 dKH 14 water and are fine. The big thing is keeping conditions stable.
