This plant normally grows fast, but the addition of CO2 may be necessary to promote growth. In small, open aquariums, it can grow out of the aquarium and form beautiful surface leaves. The finely branched leaves are very decorative and provide good contrast to other leaf shapes. In good light, Ceratopteris thalictroides grows fast and helps prevent algae by consuming large amounts of nutrients. This makes it a good starter plant in small aquariums. I personally recommend this beautiful plant for initial setups. It is fast growing and so helps to out compete algae. It is the first plant I started with as a child. Undemanding and easy to grow.
