You might know that lead can be toxic, and that you can get lead poisoning from eating or inhaling old paint dust. Lead is called a heavy metal, and there are other sources of heavy metals that can be toxic, too. Silver, copper, mercury, nickel, cadmium, arsenic, and chromium are all heavy metals that can be toxic in certain environments. In this experiment, find out if one common heavy metal, copper, can be toxic to an aquatic environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Googles at Great Price Nice fitting goggles with vents that allow for air flow. I just hope the lenses do not scratch and the straps do not come off like the last ones we purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, healthy plants ready for population growth study I have purchased this item multiple times. It always arrives fresh and viable, although not axenic. Easy to work with, Students like "one of the world's smallest plants" aspect. I like growing a population in a small space that doesn't need a cage cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast delivery - all alive The snails arrived nicely packaged and were all alive and ready for my experiment. Delivery date is accurate. We paid for express delivery and it is worth the price. The local aquarium don't carry too many snails and they were expensive too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Duckweed I've ordered this several times, and it has always arrived healthy. It's probably more than they say (100-150 individuals) but they are very small, so it's not that much. Sometimes this product arrives with tiny bonus snails. I like the snails, but others may not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed to thrive. The snails failed to thrive. This was a surprize and major disappointment.
