Why Choose Water Spangles?

  • Visually Appealing: The small, green leaves float beautifully on the water surface, adding a decorative touch to your aquarium while providing shade for fish below.
  • Easy to Maintain: Water Spangles are incredibly low-maintenance, thriving in a wide range of water conditions and requiring minimal care.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Light Requirements: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate varying light levels, making it versatile for different aquarium setups.
  • Water Conditions: Performs well in temperatures between 68°F and 82°F (20°C to 28°C), with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5.
  • Growth Management: Regularly thin out the plants to prevent excessive cover, which can limit light and oxygen to underwater plants.

Aquascaping Benefits:

  • Surface Coverage: Provides excellent coverage for the water surface, helping reduce algae growth by blocking light.
  • Habitat Enrichment: Offers hiding spots and reduces stress for fish and shrimp, promoting a healthier aquarium environment.

Enhancing Your Ecosystem:

  • Water Quality Improvement: Acts as a natural filter by absorbing excess nutrients and purifying water, which helps maintain a clean and healthy tank.
  • Oxygenation: Although floating, it helps in oxygenating the water and maintaining a balanced ecosystem.
