This miniature lily pad surface floating plant is popular in the hobby for it’s ability to suck up nitrates and keep your water conditions stable. They can propagate very quickly and completely cover the surface of your tank and thus may require regular removal. As they are floating plants, the leaves may burn if the lights are very bright and close to them. Each $5 portion comes with a packed tennis ball size of fronds.
