I just got some water poppy from the local pet store that they'd had growing in their own turtle tank and the turtles seemed to enjoy eating off of it, but I want to be certain that it's safe for my RES because ive read they shouldnt eat plant bulbs. will these be okay in his tank?

Good question, I don't think I've heard of people using it on this or any other forum. It's probably OK, just use your judgement and eer on the side of caution.
