Hornwort, also known as Ceratophyllum Demersum, is found worldwide. Hornworth can be used as a floating plant or as an upright stem plant.  It does not have roots but when planted, Hornworth produces rhizomes that allow it to attach to the gravel.  This plant is a fast grower and many hobbyists use in fry tanks to provide hiding places for young fish.  Because of its fast growth, Hornworth is great for planted aquariums because it will quickly absorb extra nutrients from the water column, preventing algal blooms.

    Small hitchhikers found!

    I am in love with my plants! They arrived looking very healthy, with the exception of some browning. I know that’s completely normal though due to the trauma of shipping for the little plants. However, I have one question! I have been soaking my hornwort in lukewarm tap water before I add it to my aquarium. I cleaned them as well as I could to remove any fallen leaves and put them in some glass to soak. When I came to rinse them again and dechlorinate before adding to my aquarium, I noticed a bunch of tiny long narrow crustaceans swimming around and a handful of red roundworms swimming around the bottom. I’m very scared to put it in my aquarium. What should I do?

    The plants were very green and healthy upon arrival. I have placed them in my turtle tank and he loves them. He has moved them all over his tank.

    My first bunch I placed in a 60 gal 21" tall aquarium. I was skeptical at first. Looked a little brown etc. These plants within three or four weeks have completely grown to the surface and I've had to cut them back and replant. The baby fish love this plant. I ordered more for my 40 gallon. This may be the best plant, and I've ordered many, that I've purchased from ModernAquarium.

    I was impressed with how well it held up to being shipped! Looks great. I have anchored it to mimick it being planted and it's flourishing
