Turtle enjoyed eating it

The plant came in perfect health. I placed it in a bowl of my tank water for a few days before placing it in my tank, where it lasted less than a week because my turtle enjoyed eating it so much. The roots are still there, so I'm hopeful that I will get some regrowth as well.
