looking to trade: native fish for plant

im looking for a native north american plant, Potamogeton richardsonii. for trade i am offering two trios of Lucania Goodei, the bluefin killifish, two males and 4 females.

the plant is native to most of north america, just not the south east where i am. it is also called richardsons pondweed.

my blue fin killifish are wild caught, part of a school of about thirty i have in a 65 gallon planted tank. they are eating frozen bloodworms, flake, live blackworms, daphnia, and ostracods.

You show me a man who can reliably grow algae and I will show you a man who can reliably grow fish.

Is it the same as curly pondweed? If so, there is tons of it in my area.

Re: looking to trade: native fish for plant

as far as i know, curly pondweed is potamogeton crispus, which is the wrong species.

here is a link for the species im looking for:

You show me a man who can reliably grow algae and I will show you a man who can reliably grow fish.
