  • Great for Shrimp
  • High Light
  • Carpeting

Dwarf Baby Tears is one of the smallest known plants in aquarium keeping. It is a very short and compact carpeting plant with delicate, bright green leaves. Because it is so small, it does quite well as a foreground plant or for filling empty spaces of an aquarium.

Dwarf baby tears will spread across your aquarium with runners until it forms a thick carpet. This provides an excellent place for shrimp to graze or for spawning fish to hide their eggs.

I have ordered plants from so many different websites and have ordered Dwarf Baby Tears from a total of 4 shops. This was the first one to arrive alive and it is thriving now a few weeks later.

Hard to find in pet stores

I bought this plant because I wanted a carpet of it on the floor of my tank, Unfortunately, I didn't realize that my Pleco loved it too, and he ate it. So, no more baby tears.

3 potted specimens I purchased are about 3 weeks old and doing great! I now am able to keep trimming them back and they are growing in really thick. I would post a picture if I could 👍
