Elatine hydropiper

Elatine hydropiper was brought into trade as an aquarium plant in 2010 by the aquatic plant nursery Anubias. This plant has soon gained a lot of popularity with aquascapers as wonderful ground-covering plant. It looks like a miniature version of Glossostigma elatinoides. Whereas G. elatinoides can become quite invasive under good conditions, Elatine hydropiper grows only moderately and is thus much easier to handle. 
Elatine hydropiper is widely distributed in Europe up to northern Scandinavia as well as in Siberia and Northern China. In Italy it only grows in the north-west. This species grows in and on ponds, rivers and marshes. The area of distribution reaches very far north, which makes it rather astonishing that the aquarium population of E. hydropiper grows so well in tropical tanks.
This lawn-like fresh green plant with its tiny leaves is ideal for nano tanks and small aquaria, but a large carpet of E. hydropiper is also stunning in the foreground of large tanks.
