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.

    Favorite Plant

    Posted by Leigh Larson on 1 Apr 2021

    I let this float at the top of my tanks. The fish love to swim up to it, which is great! Finally have fish swimming in all levels of my tank. I love the way this plant moves in the water. It has really added a lot to my 150 gallon cichlid tank. All the plants I have ordered from this company have been great. This is my fifth order this year!
