Bought these, and was soft enough to order a second batch. Big mistake. They come in a pressed envelope, and are really only one plant, as you would buy in an aquarium centre, not in any way 10......................They are calling each strand a plant!! a swizz.
This product looks just like Elodea Crispa Curled Pondweed in the picture, but are Not to be mistaken for them. Disappointed with the plants as they were pulled to pieces in minutes by my fish.Carp are quite rough with pond plants, these plants are no good unless you put them inside a protective cage. Was a waste of money (I think the picture should be changed to avoid misleading people).
Though this product doesn't actually say it's for use with Koi Carp, in my ignorance I thought it was the correct Elodea for all Koi. My Koi shredded them in about an hour flat, leaving the remnents floating on the surface. Perhaps they are for small aquariums/fish only.
Anyhow, the next time I bought Elodea is was definely some Elodea Crispa, which is Koi proof (or at least for me it was!). Perhaps my Koi are a bit rowdy, but from another review I've seen they're obviously not the only ones that destroy these plants. Unfortunately I didn't see the other review until it was too late.
It should be made clearer in the advert what this variety of Elodea is, and what it's actually for.
