Hardy and easy to care for, Moneywort is an amphibious plant that can grow fully or partially submersed. Its bright green, elliptic-growing leaves add a bold touch to an aquarium, and its branches are capable of growing to or beyond the surface of the water when exposed to moderate or substantial light.

    Instructions:

    Water temperature:
    Aquatic plants require a tropical community aquarium with water temperatures ranging between 72-78 degrees F (22-26 degrees C). Use an aquarium heater to maintain water temperature.

    Adding plants:
    Whether you're just starting your aquarium or introducing new plants into your tank, make sure to add only one or two plants at a time.

    Lighting:
    Most tropical plants require sunlight each day, year round. The duration and consistency are essential for plants to thrive. Natural aquariums must be equipped with the means to provide 12 hours of simulated sunlight each day.

    Plant fertilizer:
    Fertilizer should only be added according to the dosage instructions on the label, and only when needed (as in the case of a water change). Plants will grow best if fertilized moderately and regularly after water changes rather than given larger quantities of fertilizer on a less-regular basis.

    Fish and plants:
    Small schooling fish are highly recommended for a natural planted aquarium; larger fish often uproot plants. The adult size and eating habitats of a fish should always be taken into consideration.

    Water changes:
    Test water weekly to assess water quality. It is recommended that 10% of your aquarium water be changed per week. At the very least, 25% of your aquarium water should be changed per month. For optimal health, regular water changes not only prevent the undesirable accumulation of excess nutrients, but also remove excess nitrates and waste products of the fish and plants.

    Aquarium placement:
    Place your aquarium in a low-traffic area, away from direct sunlight and drafts.

    Planting your natural aquarium:

    Foreground plants:
    Usually stay very short and help fill in the front part of the aquarium.

    Middle ground plants:
    These plants grow anywhere form 4-10 inches tall.

    Background plants:
    These are the fastest-growing and tallest plants.

    Things to watch for:
    Poor growth
    Brown spots on leaves
    Plants appear weak, pale green to yellow, stems have few leaves
    Plants cease to grow and die off
    Stem plants have long internodes and small leaves
    If you notice any of the signs described above, check your aquariumwater quality and consult an in-store Aquatics Specialist.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ehh I bought this plant a few weeks ago and is currently in a ''melting'' state so hopefully it will bounce back soon. The plant was in pretty rough shape when I bought it. Needs a lot of light! Also had several snails hitch a ride with this plant so make sure you wash any new plants very..very..very well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh. In the picture this look like a really nice plant, but beware this isn't a great plant for a low light tank, it will still live and do well, just not great, I've found it to be a real slow growing plant and it doesn't look all that great to me. If I had the chance to buy this plant again I would pass, there are far better plants to get for your aquarium.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plant for any tank This was the first plant that I put into my tank. It propagates quickly, and now I have a nice little 'forest' of it. Just so you know, when the little white things begin appearing in the leaf nodes, that's where you break it off and you have another plant to grow! I had a pond snail hitch a ride, but I just removed it and never had any issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this plant on sale. It grows VERY quickly. I have had to make it shorter once already since buying it less than a month ago.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible quality plants come from petsmart its not the plants fault. the plants kept at petsmart in the tanks are just low quality due to the poor care these plants get. the demand for them isnt high i get that. poor lighting and poor water conditions make for a poor product. i would also like to thank you for the huge infestation of unwanted ramshorn snails i got with my moneywort. the plants are doing fine in my dirt tank with proper lighting and fertilizers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from REAL? Got this plant just to try it. It's fine, grows well and looks pretty hardy and all. There is just one thing. I was looking at the plant and it looks so fake! It looks like I'm the only one that sees that. It does look cheesy but I wouldn't return it though

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bury under the gravel I like the appearance of this plant (expect when the leaves die and go brown) but it is soo high. I literally had to bury some of it underneath the gravel so it wouldn't be so high.
