Mayaca fluviatilis

Mayaca fluviatilis is a small, delicate stem plant can be a lovely foil to darker and bolder leafed plants. It is a plant that requires good nutrient supplementation and supplemental CO2 to be at its best. It can be used as a background plant in a small tank, or trimmed into a lovely mid-ground mound in a larger tank. Be aware that some algae eating fish, such as Siamese algae eaters, will also prey on this and other fine leafed stem plants.
