Hornwort is a bright green stem plant with pine like leaves most commonly used as a floating plant. It thrives in a wide range of lighting and aquarium conditions.
Hornwort can grow extremely fast under the right conditions (i.e. lots of light and waste nutrients like nitrates, ammonia & phosphates) and slows down with less light & nutrients. This means Hornwort rapidly absorbs these unwanted wastes / toxins and it oxygenates & clarifies the water.
Simply put, Hornwort is a must have for tanks with high waste bio-loads, and is a great “insurance policy” in shrimp tanks, should ammonia & nitrates spike unexpectedly.
Each Hornwort bunch comes with 6 stems that are about 3" - 5" in length.
