Hydrocotyle Leucocephala

Commonly known as Brazilian Pennywort, this extremely fast growing species sends out runner-like stems across the substrate. The large area of the surface serves as resting pads for corydoras, and the older large leaves harbor algae for invertebrates and otocinclus to feast on.
