Dwarf Water Lettuce

Would anybody like some Dwarf Water Lettuce? Its a small floating plant that dangles its roots about 5cm into the tank.
It is excellent at removing Nitrates from the water and will provide shading if needed. My tank is producing a good 'salads worth' every week and I am just composting it at the moment.

I also have about 500,000 Malaysian trumpet snails, plant friendly and house trained also free to a good home.

If you would like some just drop me a PM

@Matt
It was sold as  Pistia stratioes and is not more than 4cm leaf tip to tip. I clear it out on a weekly basis. Most of the plants I remove are about 2cm with roots about 3cm long. I have seen the roots almost 10cm when the Nitrates get below 15ppm and the plants get to full size
