Cryptocoryne Balansae-Find These Live Aquarium Plants and Other Aquarium Aquatic Plants Online Today at petco.com

The Cryptocoryne Balansae is a type of Rosette plant that is typically used as a background plant due to its ability to grow vertically relatively easily in a variety of aquatic conditions. Aquarium aquatic plants, such as the Balansae, not only help to add beauty and add to the overall ambience of your underwater wonderland, but they also improve the water quality and add color to your aquarium. These stunning live aquarium plants absorb carbon dioxide and nitrates, which helps to make the aquatic environment less polluted and more inhabitable for your fish and other aquatic life. Meanwhile, these live aquatic plants help ease fish stress by providing them with shelter and security. Sometimes referred to as the Cryptocoryne crispatula 'Balansae,' the Balansae has origins that stem from the rivers and streams of Thailand and Vietnam. Hence, this aquatic plant does well in moderate to high lighting conditions. Care wise, this plant is very undemanding and has been known to grow relatively tall, when in the proper growth conditions. As with other plants in the Cryptocoryne genus, this species does not handle being uprooted and moved to another tank once established.
