How to get Free Plants for Your Fresh Water Aquarium!

We have been going to the park a lot lately so I decided to make it fun for Mom and the kids as well. We took the cusomary walk down the river and as you go there is a shallow spot where you can walk across the water on rocks and see the little plants growing inthe water and along the water's edge. I have sceen these plants for sale before at the pet stores and online so I decided to try to pull some up and put them in my fish tanks.
On the first attempt they floated back up tp the top because the fish are really loving them. This wasn't good so I decided to make a device that makes them sink and stay in place. I took some sandwhich bags and added some of the stones that I had to them about 5 or so and then I tied a knot just at the bottom of the plant. From there I knew that the plants were going to need water so I poked several wholes in the bottom with a sewing pin and placed them in a corner of the tank. It really has worked and made me happy as well as the fish. If you try it please let me know. God Bless!
