Care & Maintenance for Java Fern
Java Fern Trident, like its other Java Fern cousins, is both versatile and easy to take care of in the aquarium. In nature, it grows on the banks of rivers and smaller streams both submerged as well as above the water surface.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Low
- Temperature Range: 68-82°F
- Tank Placement: Midground, Background
Java Fern's roots are designed to attach to hard surfaces such as rocks and driftwood. In aquariums, like in nature, the plant should be attached to hard surfaces - rocks, wood, decorations, etc. - and not be planted in substrate. It is a relatively slow growing plant. If some leaves become blackened and ragged, they should be removed. Sharp aquascaping scisosors will make this a quick and easy job.
Java Fern readily adapts to most aquarium conditions. It requires little light and is suitable for low nutrients conditions. The leaves of Java Fern contain chemicals that make them unpallatable to most herbivorous fish. It is the plant that will thrive in aquariums with some of the most boisterous fish.
