    Hello. So, long story short, found some cool looking plants in a lake.[​IMG][​IMG]I like these, but they are from a lake. Will they be safe in my planted 20 RCS tank? They look very pretty.What are they? Can they carry any sickness?Also. I want to make like a "tree farm" (like a grid w/ these plants to grow after splitting. ) My ludwigia... And... This...[​IMG]I think is would look nice in the back. (Kinda like the java moss etc on a grid)

    One of the plants appears to be a water milfoil/foxtail (aquarium/water)

    Invasive species that is widely loved by aquarists. Cool.

    I don't know the first one, but the second one is Myrophillium Pinnatum, also known as Foxtail Green.

    And this one is a species of Elodea. Looking at the amount of leaves on each whorl (section) of the plant I'd say it's Elodea Canadensis. Both the Myrophillium and Elodea are easy plants and very fast growing. My RCS love them Good luck with your shrimp!

    Was the first one just floating in the water when you found it or did you have to break it off a plant? Because I know what it looks like to me but it's not an aquatic plant.

    First pic was indeed floating. I've debated on that possibility. But it is very green. I will give a few closeups.

    It looks like the growing tip of either Elderberry or Walnut.
