Freshwater Plants for Aquariums

Some fish tank plants are easier to care for than others. For a beginner planted aquarium, consider low light aquarium plants: a foreground plant like false Java Moss (Taxiphyllum barbieri) and background plants like Flame Moss (Taxiphyllum spec. flammenmoos) and Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus).

The seasoned freshwater aquarist might consider foreground plants like Micranthemum montecarlo or Utricularia graminifolia and midground plants like Pogostemon Helferi. Moderate level live freshwater aquarium plants require greater care and equipment.

Marine Depot also stocks expert level aquarium plants, like Dwarf Baby Tears (Hemianthus Callitrichoides 'Cuba'), used to stunning effect in an Iwagumi tank setup.
