Hello everyone! I went out plant shopping yesterday for my goldfish tank and saw some amazon frogbit. I rather liked it and thought it would be a good addition since goldfish like to snack on it. My one worry is that my water is rather hard at a pH of 8. Does anyone have any experience or success stories growing it in this hard of water? Thank you!

I've seen frogbit in african tanks, so I'd imagine it would be okay.
Thats good to know. Thank you! Online it said up to 7.5 pH so I wondered if it would die on me.

It might, what about duckweed? Or mosquito fern grows but not fast up to 10.
I think I read duckweed had higher light requirements. My light was stolen from a ten gallon hood I picked up on Craigslist so it's not the brightest thing. The Java moss and ferns are doing fine though. I'll have to look up mosquito fern. I haven't heard of it before ^_^ Thanks!

Can’t think of a single common plant that actually has parameter requirements besides adequate GH, so you’ll be fine
