Hornwort (The ultimate cover for Fish Fry)
Hornwort or Ceratophyllum is a super easy to grow plant for your planted aquarium. Hornwort is sometimes called Guppy Grass. I am not sure why it is called Guppy Grass. The obvious answer is that it is great for breeding guppies and other small fishes. The small leaves on Hornwort are perfect for small fry to hide from predators. What else I like about Hornwart is how fast it grows.
Aquarium plants that grow at this kind of rate make for great "filtering" type plants. They can grow and absorb excess nutrients in your planted tank. We have lots of this plant and other fast growing filter plants like Java Moss and Duckweed. Just let us know what you are looking to do.
This plant has super fine leaves which will grow quickly as we have stated, however because of this, expect some of these leaves to fall off initially in your aquarium. This is normal. It will grow back new growth almost as quickly as it dropped a few :)
Don't Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!
Love how this plant floats! The fish swim thru it, all the plants i have bought came in full of color and healthy!
My Angle fry love the hornwort! Looks awsome in my fry tank!
I was so surprised on the amount that came! Way more than expected
This plant is awesome- I draped it on driftwood tree and it looks fantastic!
Hornwort is difficult to ship and that makes it hard to find. I expected to have some browning and leaf fall when I received it, but overall it was in decent condition. I have grown this plant in the past and it can become quite invasive so I expect this to recover and fill my tank in due time. I was very happy with the price and shipping time. I was very happy to find it stocked at Dustin's Fishtanks. Just expect there to be some browing when received.
