So, the fun thing about trades is, you never know 100% what you're getting.

Someone I know had to gut his tank because of a tragic dragonfly larvae infiltration, and traded a bunch of the plants that were in it. Included was a mat of Monte carlo, a huge java fern, a beautiful lotus, and some rotala vietnam (plant-wise, anyway).

Also included, unintentionally, was a few strings of bladderwort (sadly seems to have disappeared), a splattering of Queen moss on the lotus bulb, and newly discovered, a penny-sized leaf of what appears to be subwassertang.

Subwassertang looks really cool, and I'd love to have more of it without having to purchase some. What does it take to keep this "freshwater seaweed" alive and growing?

Well, my tank is only at 77°F so I'm good there. Would it be better if I brought it closer to my light, let it float around in my breeder? Or should I just leave it alone and hope it takes?

It hasn't died, so at least there's that.
