plants i could give a clipping or two off
bocopa monieri
bocopa carolina
lace jave fern
limnophila sessiflora
Hygrophila corymbosa "angustifolia
most grow fast after they adjust to moving so if you have patience you can get quite a few plants started, enough to set up a real nice scape soon.
you also need florescent bulbs around 6700k 'daylight' or as close to that as possible to grow plants with.

that's true

some would do well in a pond. the duckweed and watersprite can float. the watersprite will get HUGE in your pond. i will look into what other ones can do well in your pond if you want. i know that you can grow bocopa monieri in there and right around the outside of the pond. i think the Najas guadalupensis would be a good pond plant too. it can be grown planted or floating free.
i have a hycinth too but i want to see how it does indoors. if it needs to go into a pond i will give it to you, if you like.

ok, the limnophila sessiflora would also be a good pond plant. it needs to be planted into the ground and it will grow out of the surface water and flower. the amazon sword will do good too. it's pretty small right now.

they would all need to come in for the winter
