A new foreground plant that has gained a lot of popularity with aquascapers as wonderful ground-covering plant. It looks similar to glossostigma but smaller in size. It is a popular foreground for nano tanks and grows slower compare to glosso making it relatively easy to maintain.
The creeping growth of this stem-plant makes it highly attractive for creating carpets in the aquarium. The very small leaf size makes it an obvious choice for nano-tanks.
Its fresh green colour compliments wood, rocks and other plants extraordinary well and has made the plant increasingly popular.
The growth of Elatine hydropiper is quite similar to Hemianthus callitrichoides 'Cuba' and Glossostigma elatinoides but is considerably slower, making it easier to maintain.
