Mayaca fluviatilis is a beautiful aquarium plant, specially for aquascapes. It has a incredible green color and tiny leaves.
The iron requirement of Mayaca fluviatilis makes it an indicator plant that can be relied upon to indicate if enough iron is present; if it’s happy, all other species should be as well. Iron deficiency is indicated by shoots that are pale yellow or even white. Modest lighting is sufficient and CO2 supplementation is recommended.
