Facts:

Dwarf Water Lettuce floats on the water surface, providing shade and cover for aquarium inhabitants.
It has a high growth rate and can quickly propagate, forming dense mats in the aquarium.
The plant absorbs excess nutrients from the water, helping to reduce algae growth and improve water quality.
Dos:

Provide moderate lighting to support healthy growth and prevent the leaves from becoming pale.
Ensure good water circulation to prevent stagnant areas and promote oxygen exchange.
Regularly thin out the plant mats to prevent overcrowding and maintain water flow.
Don'ts:

Avoid overcrowding the aquarium with too much Dwarf Water Lettuce, as it can block out light and hinder the growth of other plants.
Do not allow the plant mats to completely cover the water surface, as it can limit gas exchange and impact fish and other aquatic life.
Avoid introducing Dwarf Water Lettuce to outdoor ponds or water bodies, as it is considered an invasive species in some regions.
