Golden Nesea, also known as nesaea pedicellata, is a relatively new addition to US aquariums. It originates in West Africa and is distinguished by its beautiful gold and green leaves with red/pink stems. These plants generally belong in the background or midground of your tank, as they can grow vertically to over 12” tall! Place them in bunches to create a golden bush that provides great cover for fish or plant them individually for the occasional highlight.
Care & Maintenance
Golden Nesaea is pretty easy to care for since you don’t need to provide any CO2 supplementation or high lighting. If you want to provide plant supplements to help it grow faster, we recommend adding fertilizer to your substrate such as Thrive Root Zone Tabs.
When placing this plant in your tank, the experts at Modern Aquarium suggest moderate light and nutrition.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 70°-82° F
- Tank Placement: Midground - Background

This is a really nice sturdy plant! Was easy to plant in the substrate and hopefully will do well!
The 2 bunches option is great! The plants were nice and healthy.
Arrived EXACTLY like the photo. Very green with red stems and lots of roots. They were dipped and added to my aquarium. Now they are loosing a little bit of the green and are kinda yellow but I know its something that has to do with my lighting or water conditions. Mostly because they arrived so healthy. I've changed a few things to see if they bounce back. Still a very beautiful plant.
Pretty plants that stand out in the aquarium!!!!
The products they sent were top quality. Very healthy, very mature plant. Leaves were all green, the roots were flawless. cant get anything better. This is the 2nd time Ive order a pile of plants from them and in both cases, fantastic service and FANTASTIC quality. I've been aquascaping for years and I've not seen any other provider have such mature and healthy plants as I've seen with MA. Thank you folks, you make my tank look professional. Now the hard part.....keeping them looking nice.
Came in healthy and it’s already getting its golden color!
leaves are yellow but still very beautiful
