Ceratopteris thalictroides Water Sprite

This plant normally grows fast, but the addition of CO2 may be necessary to promote growth. In small open aquariums it can grow out of the aquarium and form beautiful surface leaves. The finely branched leaves are very decorative and provide good contrast to other leaf shapes. In good light Ceratopteris thalictroides grows fast and helps prevent algae by consuming large amounts of nutrients. This makes it a good starter plant in small aquariums.

NOTE: Water Sprite is a floating fern, which means it only has a very small or weak root system. These often get delivered without or damaged roots due to being potted. You usually leave it float in the water for a while for the roots to develop, and then you can anchor it down or plant it. Water sprite receives a majority of its nutrients out of the water column, so does not need roots to feed.
