Pistia Stratiotes, AKA Dwarf Water Lettuce as it is commonly called, is a genus of aquatic plant in the arum family, Araceae.

Like many floating plants, it will provide shade and shelter to the fish living underneath, and will also keep the water clear of algae.

Pretty little plants

A lot of the little pieces died quickly but that was most likely due to my inexperience.

WOW

I got a pretty big boy (about 3 inches across) along with his many, many lettucy siblings. The roots stretch down pretty far giving my tank a jungle vibe right from the start! Some have a tiny bit of yellowing along the edges but they still appear to be thriving. A great addition to smaller floaters, and perfect to keep my kuhlis secure.
