All Aquarium Plants

Recommended Plants

  1. Acmella repens
    While capable of growing without CO2 supplementation, optimal growth more or less requires it.
  2. Littorella Uniflora
    Tolerates quite low light intensity, but this will add to the length of leaves.
  3. Leptodictyum Riparium
    Robust, fast-growing moss. Appends itself to hardscape. Recommended for natural tanks
  4. Apalanthe granatensis
    Apalanthe granatensis is a well-adapted aquatic plant that can be commonly found in South American.
  5. Ammannia sp. 'Bonsai'
    The more intense of light that the plant receives, the more read the stems become.
