Thread: water spritze

sorry about the spelling it might be wrong, I would like to add a couple of these for my betta as floating plants, I already have an anubia and some java fern in there, so far he doesn't seem to care much about them.
what do you think?

Is this the floating or rooted kind? The bettas I have all enjoy cover(floating watersprite). If the water sprite is big enough, bettas may wind through it at the surface, which is pretty cool to watch.
If it is the rooted form, it's fine too, and some leaves might break off and root as floaters.

oh, there is 2 kinds :-)
Coverage is what I want to achieve, I saw those in someone "jungle theme tank journal" from this forum and thought they looked pretty cool.
For what I remember they had roots but were just floating on top of the water.
Would you post a pic of yours?

I will try...there isn't much of it right now. Somebody in my 55g tank decided it was a snack. Which is why it was in with the betta, and then I realized how much Sassy was loving it. I have salvinia too.
It isn't dense cover, just light shading, which is good if you have rooted plants too.

Seems like it is a well loved plant
