Ceratophyllum demersum is a genuine cosmopolitan found all over the
globe. It has no true roots but can be planted in the bottom. In the wild it is
often found rooted, with the lower leaves forming anchors. As a floating plant
it provides a good hiding-place for young fish. C. demersum can be useful
in combating algae because it consumes nutrients in the water and secretes
substances that counteract algae. Some varieties are difficult to transport.
