This plant should be in EVERY planted aquarium! It's fast and easy to grow and sways in the current. The contrast it provides makes it very eye-catching, particularly next to small leaf plants.

Limnophila heterophylla is a low demanding aquatic plant and a good alternative for Cabomba. It grows really fast and stems can reach up to 40cm height. The space between the stalks is minimum when you use intense light and CO2. The weaker the light intensity is, the bigger the space between the stalks gets. Suitable for all aquarium sizes.
