Cabomba Green (Cabomba caroliniana), also known as Fanwort, is an aquatic plant ideal for creating natural-looking habitats in freshwater aquariums. Its simple design and lush green color bring vibrancy to any tank, adding visual interest in any space. Its tall stem and dense, fanlike leaves allow for shrimp and fish fry to hide away. With proper care, Cabomba Green will continue to grow for many years.

Native to the Southern United States, this aquatic plant has been in the hobby for decades. It's one of the most popular aquatic plants you can find and that's for a reason! It's beautiful, easy to care for, and extremely fast growing. Due to its fast growing properties it has been deemed an invasive species in many states. 

Cabomba Green grows small, soft leaves that do not overlap, at first glance you may think it's Hornwort! Its leaf blades grow up to 1.5" long, and 2" wide. They are extremely soft and delicate making it great protection for shrimp and fish fry. Once the plant reaches the surface it grows large pad like leaves on the surface, offering a unique look to any aquascape!
