Phyllanthus fluitans

This plant belongs to the spurge family, which actually consists primarily of desert plants. But over thousands of years Phyllanthus fluitans has adapted to an entirely different environment. Like other floating plants it is most suitable for open aquariums, where it develops beautiful red leaves at high light intensities. If growth is good the plant needs thinning to prevent it overshadowing plants on the bottom.
