  • Can Watercrest be used in a fish tank?

    Did some grocery shopping today and bought some watercrest and wondering if it can be grown submerge since watercrest are grown in streams.

    It would kind of be like hydroponics imo... I think it could be done... But I'd try to find organic ones if you plan to add it to a fish tank...
    2.5g Betta tank (Rayne)
    2.5g Apple Snail tank (Silver)
    1.5g Saltwater MTS vase (tough little dudes)
    40g red ear slider tank (Kappa)

      I have found it needs cooler temperatures and somewhat more of a current, than is found in most tropical tanks.

        That being said, could it be grown in a hillstream loach tank? Fast current, cool water.

          When you say cooler temperature...what temp range would you consider "cooler temp" ?

          I'm thinking more submerse growing then above the tank. This bunch is organic, got it from a Whole foods grocery store (organic store)

            I would suggest under 68F, closer to 60F is better. In grows in the local water here at 56-58F.

                  I have to convince the government I am a simple postal worker and not head elf.
                  It is bad enough they try to track me each year at Christmas.
                  They would love to get their hands on my advanced alien technology.
