In the thicker parts of this slow-growing plant, fish and shrimp, and their offspring, may find shelter.

Loma Fern, Round Pellia, and Susswassertang Fern For many years, it was believed that the rare fern gametophyte known as liverwort (Lomariopsis cf. lineata) was actually a type of liverwort or moss. "Süsswassertang" or "Sübwassertang" is the German word for freshwater seaweed.

This plant is great for any freshwater aquarium because it doesn't require a lot of light to thrive. It's small size makes it suitable for both tropical and temperate aquariums. This plant is a popular hiding spot for shrimp and fish fry.

The popularity of this plant in the aquarium hobby has prompted us to provide it in a stainless steel mat that can be easily attached to and spread across rocks, driftwood, or aquarium substrate. With proper care, it could even spread along the aquarium's walls. Where this plant is grown in Taiwan, pest snails and terrestrial bugs are possible but unlikely (the bugs will not survive or reproduce underwater).

Use caution when applying fertilizer, especially to plants that grow slowly.
