*Monosolenium Tenerum* 5 gram portion

Monosolenium tenerum is a liverwort and does not technically have leaves. The green part of the plant, which resembles leaves, is known among botanists as the thallus (plural thalli), and this thallus divides into fork-like branches, giving a cushion-formed growth. Monosolenium tenerum looks very much like Riccia magnified ten times. Riccia is well known for floating on the surface. It is heavier than water and therefore remains on the bottom. It only makes modest demands on the aquarium environment. Once it has begun to flourish it spreads generously and forms attractive cushions on the bottom of the aquarium. However, the plant is quite brittle and falls apart easily during transport, so transplanting it initially into the aquarium may not be easy. To give it the best possible start it can be attached with nylon line to a stone, or small sprays can be scattered between other plants such as Eleocharis, which will prevent it from being carried about in the aquarium by fish or water circulation.
