First off - THANKS for all your wonderful advice! Got a question on a lizard tail...Are the leaves supposed to be above water when planted? I got it from EBay and there were no instructions that came with it.

Lizard tail is a marginal, so it should be planted where the crown will be no more than 6" below the water. Most marginals like to be 4-6" deep; some can tolerate a bit more, others like a bit less.

Another marginal. Same as above. My pickerel will creep out a little deeper from the main plant (not potted) but it still likes to start out in about 4 inches of water.

I have both in my pond, both around 6 inches deep in the water, some of the lizard tail is in the bog, gravel and water.
