Dwarf Water Lettuce is a super easy floating aquatic plant for any fish tank.
Dwarf Water Lettuce is great at providing some shade for your slow growing plants and fish. The roots will provide an excellent hiding place for baby fish or shrimp. Shrimp will also graze on the roots of the plant. Dwarf Water Lettuce reproduces rapidly by sending out daughter plants. It doesn't need anything special to thrive and will help to reduce nitrate buildups in your tank. Dwarf Water Lettuce plant can grow bigger than normal if the surface water has no movement. If your aquarium has little flow, the size will get to be slightly bigger than a quarter.
