Also known as pondweed or Anacharis, Elodea is a fast-growing plant that adapts to cold, temperate and tropical temperatures. Commonly used with Goldfish, Betta fish and Paradise fish in small tanks and ponds. Commonly found in lakes and ponds and sometimes brackish water throughout North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

A great addition to aquariums and ponds. Trim ends and re-plant if you experience rapid or choking growth. Elodea grows quickly absorbing much carbon, hence its common description as an oxygenating plant.
