These are one of my favorite plants. Personally I choose these over Gloss Dwarf baby tears. The leaves are larger and look good from a distance. The plants are tough and can accommodate Loach, Cory, Catfish, Pleco and many more bottom feeder. The roots are anchor deep into the substrate, therefore it can take a beating by larger fish. Unlike Dwarf hair grass or Cuba Dwarf Baby Tears that usually die in a couple weeks because sellers didn't mention that those plants require allot of CO2 and fertilizer. These plants don't need CO2 or fertilizer, therefore maintenance is very low and you have beautiful rich colors.
