Cool. Thanks.
Petsmart called it "Bush Plant" haha.
Yup...that it is! I am just getting into real plants myself and have that in my first planted tank...I love it, with good light it grows like crazy, and I just clip off the top and stick it in the gravel to start another. My betta loves to sleep on it too!

I think it's superior to hornwort, it doesn't shed. The fish love to rest on it. I took out his leaf hammock since he preferred those plants. It grows fast and can be anchored or floated.

That is very interesting and good to know about it being Fanwort. My Hornwort is starting to look brownish almost reddish in some places and I read that under a lot of good light that is normal does anyone know if thats true ? It seems okay other than that and it doesnt shed that much.

Remember the Light at the end of the tunnel may be You.

I love this plant...I just clipped the top off of one two days ago and stuck it in the gravel..it has grown an inch already! It's going to be a great help filling up my next tank!
