Information Common Name: Amazon Frogbit Proper Name: limnobium laevigatum Category: Floating Plants Temperature: 4 – 32 C PH: 6.0 – 7.5 Lighting: Medium Growth Rate: Fast Difficulty: Easy Origin: Tropical america Position in Aquascape: Floating Limnobium is a wonderful floating plant that is useful in many aquarium applications. One of my favorite uses of this plant is to provide a floating root system in biotope/natural aquascapes that require tops and restrict the use of genera such as Pistia. Killifish and Anabantoids love this stuff as well. The thick root systems and shade provided by this plant makes it a perfect choice for people wishing to keep and breed these types of fish. I’ve kept it in nutrient poor aquaria with moderate light with some success. This plant flourishes in tanks with high light, good water column supplementation, and good but gentle circulation. If kept in favorable conditions, a little bit of Limnobium will cover a 300 or 350 L tank in a couple weeks and will provide attractive little flowers. I highly recommend this species for all but the most dedicated and light-hungry planted tank.
