FLOATING PLANTS

Floating plants are plants that naturally float on the surface of an aquarium. They are generally fast-growing plants, so they will help reduce nitrates and other nutrients in the water and make great natural filters and natural algae-inhibitors by out-competing them in nutrients and light. Floating plants help make fish and shrimp feel more secure by giving them and their fry a place to hide from potential predators. Freshwater shrimp love grazing in their roots as well, as they help grow biofilm and catch food debris.
