Here's a summary of parameters for Myriophyllum hippuroides:

  • Scientific Name: Myriophyllum hippuroides
  • Water Temperature: 64-82°F (18-28°C)
  • pH Level: 6.0-7.5
  • Water Hardness: Soft to moderately hard (2-15 dGH)
  • Lighting: Moderate to high lighting levels are preferred for Myriophyllum hippuroides. Provide at least 8-10 hours of light per day, preferably with full spectrum LED lighting.
  • CO2 Requirement: CO2 supplementation can promote healthier growth and more vibrant colors, especially in higher light setups. However, Myriophyllum hippuroides can also grow well without CO2 injection.
  • Substrate: A nutrient-rich substrate is beneficial. Use a high-quality planted aquarium substrate or add root tabs to provide essential nutrients. Myriophyllum hippuroides can root into the substrate, but it can also be grown as a floating plant.
  • Propagation: Myriophyllum hippuroides can be propagated through cuttings. Simply trim healthy stems and replant them into the substrate, or allow them to float until they develop roots.
  • Care Level: Moderate to high. Regular pruning is necessary to maintain its bushy appearance and prevent it from becoming too dense. Trim any yellowing or leggy growth to promote new, healthy growth.
  • Special Considerations: This plant is known for its feathery, fern-like leaves that can add a delicate and elegant look to your aquarium. It appreciates stable water conditions and can tolerate a range of lighting levels, but higher light will encourage more compact growth. Myriophyllum hippuroides can also benefit from occasional fertilization with a comprehensive liquid fertilizer containing iron and micronutrients to support its growth and coloration.

By maintaining these parameters and providing proper care, Myriophyllum hippuroides can thrive in your aquarium, adding a beautiful and graceful element to your aquascape.
