Canadian Pondweed (Elodia) can be grown in aquariums but you need to be careful about when you get it. Most aquatic plant suppliers keep it in ponds and if you take it from a cold water pond and put it in a tropical tank, it will fall apart in a few days and die. If you want some, try to get it from a tropical tank, or buy it during summer when the pond water is warm. It normally does better when bought in summer because there is less temperature difference between the pond and tank.
