    I wanted to say water lettuce, but the roots would be different and the leaves would have visible lines. I will second salvinia for the moment...

    edit: Is it safe to assume you want the wild plant for the aquarium? Just be sure to QT it if that's the case!

    Yes I would like some kind of floater in my tank but can't seem to find any stores around me that have some and just out fishing this morning and seen these. Won't be taking any today as I will ask my LFS if she can order some Wednesday when I go in.

    That's a little weird I find these all the time in the Everglades. Just saying

    Nice work super sleuth! I'm going to pretend I kept my original thought of water lettuce. :)

    That's the reason they are listed as prohibited. They are highly invasive and are taking over waterways.
