IAP Hornwort / Foxtail - Ceratophyllum demersum

Ceratophyllum, or Hornwort, so named because of the small protrusions on the margins of the leaves which give the plant a rather coarse feeling when run through the hand, is a beautiful plant which is very useful in keeping water clean and free of excess algae. Because they never root, all of their nutrients are derived directly from the water. The plant spends its entire life completely submersed. It provides egg scattering fish, i.e., Koi an outstanding spawning medium and a great hiding place for fish fry. Will grow either free floating or will become attached to the bottom of the pond. *****Restrictions: Sorry, but we can't ship this item to Puerto Rico*****

I put it around the fish cave, so it is not really visible. It seems to be getting overwhelmed by algae and losing fronds. Ive added snails and shrimp and things are clearing up. I hope it will survive.

The Hornwort took awhile to adjust and grows slower than the other plants which I had to cull back, but it looks great and is providing the wanted amount of coverage without culling.
