They are used to fill in the foreground and create lush, verdant growth similar to a lawn.
When given ample light and carbon dioxide many of these plants even create pearl-like bubbles of oxygen that fill the water column with delicate fizz.
Since they grow near the bottom, carpet plants sometimes need more light than other aquatic plants.
Many grow quickly while others are slow growing and need time to establish themselves.
Choosing the right aquarium carpet plant depends on both aesthetics and how much light and nutrients you can provide.
