    Hey guys. I got someone who I'm thinking of ordering fish from and he said that this plant is free with the order but he called the plant elodea and I'm not so sure.
    Here's the pic he sent me

    I can't say for sure what it is, but it's definitely not elodea (AKA anacharis).

    It actually looks a lot like some varieties of garden mint to me. Maybe some sort of sprite? I'm not sure.

    Oh
    This was the only pic he sent me
    Maybe after I order the fish I'll post a pic of the plant

    Looks like water wisteria. Poor goldie though...

    Yeah, that was what really caught my attention as well.

    I don't know if I'd be buying fish from someone who keeps them like that, lol.

    Don't order from that person. That picture is from a home decorating website, I highly doubt they took it. Sorry, but I don't think you'll get that fish or plant.... Also, that's a horrific way to keep goldfish
    Edit: here's some pics of the websites that have used the picture. I saw that particular picture well over a year ago...

    I don't think that's how he keeps his
    I think he just uses the pic as to boost his sales. Here's a pic of one a tank he posted on his whatsapp profile

    It's actually a video Screenshot_2018-06-18-19-41-53.jpg

    Thanks but I think i may still order from him
    It's a pay on delivery kind of thing so at least I know he can't take my money
