Elodea densa (also known as egaria densa) is a good plant for beginners, and its rapid growth helps create a balance in the aquarium from the start. Elodia helps preventing algae because it absorbs a great number of nutrients from the water. The plant secretes antibiotic substances which can help prevent blue-green algae (a type of bacteria). The growth rate depends largely on the amount of light and nutrition available. Growth does not stop in unfavorable conditions, but the plant turns light in colour and the tendrils grow thin. They are best used as background plants.
