In the 1970's coloured aquarium plants were rare, which is why Echinodorus osiris with its red colour quickly became popular. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, and when there is a shortage of micro-nutrients new leaves turn pale, thus indicating that fertiliser may be necessary. It is generally an undemanding plant which is suitable for both soft and hard water. The red colour of the leaves grows stronger at higher light intensities. It used to be sold as Echinodorus rubra. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish.Family: Alismataceae Origin: Brazil Height: 25 cm - 50 cm Width: 20 cm - 30 cm Temperature: 28 - ° C pH: 5.5 - 8 Remove the pot and the mineral wool carefully from the roots. Remove the outermost leaves as they will die under water under any circumstances and the plant will rapidly develop new leaves adapted to conditions under water. Shorten the roots and spread them when planting. Remove whole leaves from the base when trimming, pinch off offshoots and plant them in the bottom layer.Grown to the highest quality in Denmark by Tropica Aquarium Plants.

5 different types of filter media for every type of cleaning 1. Tetratec CR Ceramic Filter Rings remove large particles of waste and help to even out the flow of water through the filter. They can be cleaned with tap water and do not need regular replacement 2. TetraTec BF Biological Filter Foam doubles as a media for removing finer particles of solid waste as well as providing a high surface area for bacterial activity. To operate the foams purely as a mechanical media for solid waste removal clean them under tap water as necessary. To maximise their biological activity clean them in a jug of aquarium water 3. TetraTec BB Bio Filter Balls are biological media that provide an excellent environment for friendly bacteria to break down ammonia into harmless nitrate. Because they are not too porous they allow a good flow of water through them which ensures that all the bacteria receive a supply of oxygen and nutrients. This keeps them working effectively and avoids ¿dead areas¿. Clean in aquarium water only as and when necessary 4. TetraTec CF Carbon removes organic contaminants reduces odours and prevents the water from going yellow. Its use will keep the water looking like new as well as improving its quality for your fish. Carbon should be replaced every 4 to 6 weeks as over time it becomes saturated 5. TetraTec FF Filter Floss reliably removes very fine particles of waste thus helping to give the water a final ¿polish¿. This coupled with the carbon ensures the aquarium remains crystal clear. TetraTec FF Filter Floss should be replaced when it becomes dirty.
