    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    This plant looks good in a brightly lit tank with black substrate. The ends of the stems and leaves will close up after the light turns off too. However, keep up the nutrients or else it'll start to die off from the bottom.

    Actually, I think this is cabomba, not hornwort. It looks similar.

    Cabomba is a good guess, but I doubt it is cabomba. If you look closely you can see the characteristic little spikes on the leaves that give the plant it's name ceratophyllum(horn-leaf)

    nutrients are fertilizer and keep them up by adding it. You can use liquid added to the water or tablets in the substrate.
    When in d0ubt read it until it makes sense, then read it again!

    I'd use liquid. My mollies try to eat everything that drops into the tank.
