Aquarium and water garden enthusiasts

  • Do not release aquatic invasive plants into any waters; dispose of unwanted aquarium or water garden plants in the trash.
  • Select non-invasive aquatic plants for your water garden or fish tank; there are many native and non-invasive alternatives you can buy instead of invasive plants.
  • Rinse your aquatic garden plants before planting.
  • Keep aquatic plants contained in your water gardens.
  • Don’t release unwanted aquarium fish and other pets, live bait or other exotic animals into the wild. If you plan to own an exotic pet, do your research and plan ahead to make sure you can commit to looking after it.
