Limnophila indica is a good alternative to Cabomba. Most beautiful when planted in groups. In good growing conditions it sends out runners and spreads across the bottom.
There are a number of fine-leafed Limnophila species that can be impossible to differentiate unless they are gown emersed and flowered. This old fashioned aquarium stand-by is one of them. It is native to the warmer parts of the old world, but can also be found introduced to areas of the United States and South America. Limnophila indica is more demanding plant. It should be kept with co2 and higher lighting and we recommend substrate fertilizer tabs.
