Ceratopteris thalictroides isn't all that normally grows fast but with the addition of CO2 it really motors. In a small aquarium it can grow out of the top and form truly wonderful and decorative leaves. The fine branches of the leaf itself are decorative and provide an interesting contrast to other types of leaf shapes.

In good light Ceratopteris thalictroides grows very fast and helps to prevent algae by consuming large amounts of nutrients. As a result this is an ideal plant for beginners with small aquariums.

Excellent plant, arrived quickly and is very strong and healthy and has settled in very quickly

These plants arrived in tip top condition and are now growing away in the aquarium.

Really superb plants, lush and green. Both pots were well populated with plants, more than enough for my tank.

Bought two and both have taken well. I can confirm that despite what the forums say, Amano shrimp DO eat plants and not just those that are dead/dying. These plants are a favourite of my shrimp to munch on ;)
