Hornwort is a very attractive plant, which groups nicely. It grows readily, even under mildly unstable conditions (Dont use that as an excuse to abuse it). My only warning is dont place this in smaller tanks, because the spine-like leaves constantly fall off of the bottom stems, and grow on the top. The leaves float so are easily removed, but can clump up and slowly rot.

Im not exactly good with plants yet but i have had no problem raising this plant. They are not at all picky and will grow very fast in most conditions, and can easily grow 2, 3, or 4 times the length of your tank

Beautiful plant, especially when there white flowers appear. I keep mine for food. The fish love to eat them. They become very long also.

you need to add information about the freshwater plants and not just have pictures and descriptions of freshwater plants!!!


Please do it because it will get a lot more people to look on your website and it will be a great reference!



Thanks!

I got 2 platies as young ones, but they already had their colors when I got them. And while I was in school, they must have had fry because when I got home I looked in and there were dozens of them!
Since my parents wont let me put the fry in a seperate tank, the best I could do was put in the fake hornwort plants and put food in to distract the adult fish.

they really are good oxygenators! but they grow very fast and dead leaves tend to ruin the nice gravels.

My dear friends, excellent oxygenator- will adapt to warm or cold water and can even tolerate small amounts of salt, but contrary to common belief, WIlL BE EATEN BY POND AND RAMSHORN SNAILS. If you havent already screwed up by getting snails -DONT. I started with ONE snail and now have over 300- (yes they can procreate by themselves)

    I love my ramshorn snails. I breed them purposely. My goldfish love to munch on the babies and the adults clean my tank. Population control is easy with fish that eat the babies and eggs.
