View Full Version : Dwarf Water Lettuce

05-22-2009, 05:19 PM
I was thinking about getting a floating plant for my 29g because the fish I want to get will rely on the shade and protection that a floating plant provides.

I tried java moss to no avail, seeing as how it just sunk to the bottom:scry:
So I am now focusing on attaining Dwarf Water Lettuce

I am not doing C02 injections, nor liquid ferts, yet.
I still have the lights that came with the tank so its a low lit tank, 1 watt per gallon.
And it would float on the surface about 1¼ inches below the lights

With those conditions would the plant do well in my tank or would it suffer?
Would that be enough lighting to support the Dwarf Water Lettuce?

I had dwl,it was dang near a weed in my tank.I eventually grew tired of having to thin it out all the time and got rid of it.If your looking for a hardy low maint floating plant I cant think of one thats better.
