Top Fin Peacock Fern
Shame, pretty but worthless
This was real pretty plant. Several of my fish took right to it hanging out in among its leaves right away. Unfortunately it just disintegrated in 3-4 days. It did not even have a chance to die. It just came apart with all the pretty green bits clogging up my filter system. It clearly is not a submersible plant.

I bought this plant for my aquarium. It then died after a few weeks. I went and did my own research on this plant. They sell this plant for aquarium use but, this plant does not do well submersed in water. It is more of a tropical plant. I do not suggest this plant for an aquarium.

Why all the bad reviews? Beautiful plant!
Its flouishing in my tank. After just 3 days it looks as if it is perking up a lot from the way it was kept in the store. It has also sprouted what looks like multiple root systems in those 3 days, that come from the leaves. People keep saying that the plant isn't for aquariums but i have had others in my aquariums that have made it just great. I might check the roots and leaves better next time I buy a plant because it was rotting a bit where the leaves were touching the bottle sides.

I bought one of the short stage of these. It has been in my aquarium for more than 6 months now. It is flourishing. It has built a very complex and dense root system. It stands about 18" from the top of the substrate. It has runners creating more plants coming from the bottom. This plant has been completely submerged since I brought it home and placed it in my aquarium. Out of the 4 plants I bought, all at the same time and same stage in the same aquarium, this one has done the best. As for it being snail free, it is.
