Aponogeton boivinianus088

Aponogeton boivinianus is a large, strong plant which is only suitable for large aquariums. In favourable conditions it can form very large leaves (up to 80 cm long and 8 cm wide). The oldest leaves are deep dark-green, while younger leaves are light-green and sometimes brownish until they are fully developed. In the wild Aponogeton boivinianus is found in fast-flowing water, and it prefers some flow in the aquarium water. It needs a dormant period when the root does not produce leaves.

Aponogeton crispus

083

Aponogeton crispus looks good in any aquarium with its light-green, transparent leaves. It makes few demands, although growth is always best in soft, slightly acidic water with a nutritious bottom. In such conditions the plant produces a mass of leaves, and it flowers very frequently in optimum conditions. Aponogeton crispus is generally found in ponds that are only filled with water in the rainy season, but it does not need a dormant period in the aquarium.

Home aquariums are becoming more and more popular, it is a hobby that many people are flocking too and fish shops are on the rise.
