Who identified the plant? Is it common elodea or Brazilian elodea? Are you sure it isn't hydrilla? (all three species share similar characteristics) Just want to make sure before possibly chasing the wrong goose.

Thanks for your reply. To the best of my knowledge, my elodea is "Elodea Cannadensis" as identified in "Water Weeds and Algae" book, and "Aquacide Company" brochure, It is not hydrilla, no serrated edges. Am not familiar with Brazilian elodea. How does it differ from above?

A very good site for identification and management of water plant is
Aquaplant

It has excellent pictures and detailed descriptions.
