Red Root Floater: A Stunning Floating Plant for Your Aquarium

Introducing the Red Root Floater, a beautiful and versatile floating plant that adds a vibrant splash of color to your aquarium. With its delicate red roots and lush green and pink leaves, this plant creates a stunning visual contrast and provides numerous benefits to your aquatic environment.

Key Features:

1. Vibrant Coloration: The Red Root Floater is prized for its vibrant red roots and bright pink and green leaves, which create a striking visual focal point in any aquarium. As it floats on the water's surface, the plant adds a pop of color and enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of your tank.

2. Natural Filtration: Beyond its ornamental value, the Red Root Floater offers practical benefits for your aquarium ecosystem. Like other floating plants, it helps to absorb excess nutrients from the water column, reducing the risk of algae overgrowth and improving water quality for your fish and other aquatic inhabitants.

3. Shade and Shelter: The dense foliage of the Red Root Floater provides valuable shade and shelter for fish, fry, and other tank inhabitants. This is especially beneficial for shy or timid species that prefer dimly lit areas and appreciate the security provided by floating plants.

4. Oxygenation: As a floating plant, the Red Root Floater contributes to oxygenation in the aquarium by releasing oxygen into the water during photosynthesis. This helps to maintain healthy oxygen levels and creates a more hospitable environment for your aquatic pets.

Care Instructions:

  • Difficulty Level: Easy. The Red Root Floater is a low-maintenance plant that thrives in a wide range of aquarium conditions, and doesn't require CO2 injection, making it suitable for beginners and experienced aquarists alike.

  • Lighting: Provide moderate to high lighting levels for optimal growth and coloration. LED or fluorescent lighting fixtures are ideal for promoting healthy photosynthesis and vibrant red hues in the plant's roots.

  • Water Parameters: Maintain stable water parameters with a temperature range of 72-82°F (22-28°C), pH level of 6.0-7.5, and moderate water hardness. Regular water changes and proper filtration are essential for keeping the aquarium environment stable and conducive to plant growth.

  • Propagation: The Red Root Floater reproduces readily under favorable conditions, producing daughter plants that can be separated and replanted to expand your floating garden. Simply remove excess plantlets as needed to prevent overcrowding.

You will receive 3-4 plants.
