    Just a bit of correction, it should be Süsswassertang (German spelling: Süßwassertang) not subwassertang.

    anything connected with that plant in the UK is spelt the way i'v done it from wright ups to for sale , and aquatic magazines no doubt it is spelt differently in different parts of the world

    Thats cause the used ß isn't used out of Germany (written like a B but pronounced as SS) Süßwasser means Freshwater.

    Süßwassertang is the original spelling but Subwassertang is equally established as common name. See this German forum (English language setting available). The history is quite interesting. In nature the closest related ever discovered plant is not found aquatic rather living on trees.

    That's a very interesting article Baba, but it now seems we have five different common names for the same plant,

    Isn't that the case for most fish and plants in our hobby? Everyone has his own little pet name it seems.

    It sure is expensive. If someone in the US is interested, I found it at Trins Tropical Fish. $10 for a small piece though :eek:



    So hurry up before the tariffs and duties are in place :p

    so i'v noticed lovely country Baba yet in parts of the world it grows in the wild, even importing from Holland would be cheaper,we're in the wrong business

    Yeah :( I miss Europe in this regards. Every little town has almost as many LFS as bakeries.
    Here no (decent) bakery and no fish store (except one really good one for salt and African Cichlids). Most stuff needs to be ordered online for a lot of $$$.
    Sorry for going off topic.
